High School Dual Enrollment

Start earning college credit in high school

Coastal Alabama Community College provides college credit opportunities to eligible high school students through the Alabama Community College Board of Trustees' Policy. This policy allows eligible high school students to enroll in college classes concurrently with high school classes, and to receive both high school and college credit where appropriate. Currently, this program is available only to qualified students who are enrolled in partnering schools and districts.
