The Dual Enrollment Program allows high school students the opportunity to enroll in college-level courses for credit prior to high school graduation. Dual enrollment courses are offered at participating high school during the regular school day and by a qualified high school instructor and/or a visiting faculty from COS. Some college credit earned can fulfill high school graduation requirements, transfer to most colleges and universities, and be applied towards the fulfillment of associate degrees and certificates at COS.
In response to novel coronavirus (COVID-19), our dual enrollment instructors have transitioned their courses to alternative formats. All dual enrollment instructors have confirmed that alternative formats have been established (e.g. Canvas, Google Classroom, Schoology, emailed assignments, etc.) and each have communicated their changes to their students. If students are unclear or lose communication with their instructor over the next few weeks, please notify the director for dual enrollment as soon as possible.We hope that this is only for a short while, but there is still a lot of uncertainty around the length of this pandemic. Our instructors are prepared to continue instruction until the end of the semester, if needed. This is to ensure that dual enrollment students remain on track with the College's academic calendar.
Provided below are a few resources for students during this period:
The College will be temporarily operating remotely, which includes instruction and student services.

Despite these new changes, we are encouraging student to remain enrolled in their dual enrollment classes. Our instructors are prepared to work with students as we all adjust to these new changes. In the event that a student feels apprehension about continuing or experience difficulties adjusting to the new format, students can receive an excused withdrawal (EW) in their course(s). Students can begin requesting “EWs" starting Monday, March 23, 2019, and can do so until the end of the spring 2020 term. All courses that receive an “EW" will be removed from students' transcripts.
Prospective Dual Enrollment Students
We are currently working with our partnering high school to come up with a plan on registering new and returning dual enrollment students for the next upcoming year. More information regarding application workshops, permission forms, and registration will be announced in the upcoming weeks.Brandon Hildreth
