Dual Enrollment Courses

The dual enrollment program with Central Virginia Community College allows students who are enrolled in certain high school courses to receive both high school and college credit. All dual enrollment core content courses (Advanced Composition; Advanced Pre-Calculus/Applied Calculus; and Advanced College Biology) are weighted at 5.0 quality points. Student interest defines which courses will be taught on a yearly basis. Students enrolled in these courses may earn college credit from CVCC by fulfilling course requirements and completing the course with a grade of C or better. Students must qualify for enrollment for these courses by taking the CVCC placement test or by ACT or SAT qualifying scores. The costs for required textbooks for dual enrollment courses will remain the responsibility of the school division. Optional supplemental resources will remain the responsibility of the student and his or her family with the exception of those students receiving public assistance. Students who are not from economically disadvantaged families (with economically disadvantaged being defined as on the current list of students eligible for free or reduced price lunch) will pay fifty percent tuition and fees charged by CVCC for dual-enrollment courses. These fees will be collected from the students at the beginning of each semester, and those students who do not pay the fees by the CVCC payment deadline will not earn college credit for those courses. Students who are on the current free and reduced price lunch list will be charged twenty-five percent of the full tuition and fees charged by CVCC for dual-enrollment courses. These fees will be collected from students at the beginning of each semester, and those students who do not pay the fees by the CVCC payment deadline will not earn college credit for those courses. For more information, please contact the appropriate counselor at your school.
