The Virginia Western Dual Enrollment program is committed to providing high-school age students who can demonstrate college readiness with the opportunity to complete college-level classes at their local high schools or on the VWCC campus. At the same time, they will satisfy requirements for the completion of junior and senior high-school level courses.
High school students may have the opportunity to complete their General Studies Associate Degree or General Education Certificate concurrent with high school graduation. Students should contact their high school guidance department for further information and refer to the Governor's Scholar Program for their school division.
Visit the About Dual Enrollment section for more detailed information about the program.
At the High School
Dual enrollment classes are taught at the high school by VWCC credentialed high-school instructors. Enrollment is submitted to the college by the high school guidance department. Tuition charges are paid to the high school. Classes follow the academic calendar of the high school. Student requests to add, drop or withdrawal from these classes must be submitted by the high school.
Courses taught by VWCC faculty online or on-campus require the standard tuition rate.
All classes taught on campus or on-line through VWCC follow the Academic Calendar posted for the college. Students must register for these classes through the college’s Enrollment Center. Students must bring the Dual Enrollment High School/Home School Enrollment Approval Form with them. (See Forms link at left.)
Online tutoring is available by appointment through the Academic Link during regular hours of operation to any student who needs assistance with any VWCC course. Tutoring sessions are delivered through Blackboard Collaborate, which has audio, video and screen-sharing capabilities.
