College Hours at Participating Schools

The state of Alabama has granted permission for accredited colleges to enter agreements whereby high school students can earn both college and high school credit for selected courses. In order to better serve the needs of the Northeast Alabama Community, NACC and the school systems/districts of DeKalb County, Jackson County, Fort Payne City, Scottsboro City, and Qualified Private and Home Schools have agreed to offer this opportunity to students.

Promoting Academic Rigor and Easing the Transition to College for Our Students
What are some of the benefits of Dual Enrollment?

• Enriches course opportunities and academic rigor for high school students

• Avoids unnecessary duplication of course work

• Increases flexibility with scheduling courses at four-year schools

• Provides scholarship opportunities with four-year schools based upon successful completion of college courses

• Shortens the time to attain a college degree

• Saves students and parents money, since NACC’s tuition is less expensive than most universities

• Provides students with college credit that is transferable

• Grades earned through dual enrollment will become part of a student’s permanent high school record and collegiate transcripts

• Students who successfully complete a course through dual enrollment will never again wonder if they are ready to meet the challenge of college, because they will have already done so!

Is Dual Enrollment right for everyone?
The dual enrollment program is an opportunity to take challenging courses and accelerate education opportunities. Students who successfully complete dual enrollment courses will save time toward their college degree. Students should understand, however, that dual enrollment courses are college courses and the amount of work necessary to succeed in dual enrollment courses may be much greater than in high school courses. In addition, dual enrollment courses become a part of a student’s permanent college transcript and are calculated into the student’s permanent postsecondary GPA. It is important to do well in these courses to realize all the benefits of dual enrollment.
