Dual enrollment: Earning college credit in high school 

Several Arizona community colleges offer dual enrollment programs, which allow high school students to earn college and high school credit at the same time. These programs can be very valuable for several reasons:

  • Credits are easy to transfer to Arizona universities
  • College costs are reduced
  • Students finish college faster
  • Course duplication during early college years is eliminated
  • Students are academically challenged

AZTransfer is a great resource to connect students and parents to dual enrollment options.

College Connect programs for 9-10 graders


College Connect offers several free workshops every year that provide the perfect opportunity for parents and students to familiarize themselves with the college process. Workshop topics range from career prep to financial aid to class choice.

One-on-one appointments

These are free, personalized appointments where parents and students get one-on-one time with a College Connect expert. For middle schoolers, a one-on-one appointment is a great place to start the discussion about career and school interests and class choice.
