Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment for Dual Credit permits eligible high school students to enroll in college courses concurrently with high school classes, either at one of the college campuses or at the student's high school, earning college and high school credit simultaneously. College courses count toward high school graduation credits, and the courses remain as a part of the student's regular transcript. LBWCC's Dual Enrollment Flier provides an overview of eligible programs, scholarship funding, student records and privacy rights, and other important information. Additional policy details and forms can be found in the LBWCC Dual Enrollment Handbook

Transfer

When a student graduates from high school, college credits earned at LBWCC through the Dual Enrollment Program are trans­ferable to other public colleges and universities in Alabama through Alabama Transfers. Students planning to attend private or out-of-state colleges and universities should check with those admissions offices to determine their poli­cies relative to dual enrollment and dual credit. Additional information can be found on the Transfer Assistance webpage. 

Resources

Students in the Dual Enrollment Program have access to the same support services as traditional students, including counseling, learning resources, technology assistance, tutoring, and the bookstore. Students can access these services by visiting the LBWCC Website, by calling the applicable department, or by setting up an in-person appointment at their high school or one of our campus locations. (See the Employee Directory for contact information.) ​
