    The CBC Dual Enrollment program provides high school students the opportunity to enroll in college-credit courses. The CBC dual enrollment courses are offered at a reduced rate of tuition (almost 1/2 of non-dual student tuition). Students gain the necessary skills needed to be successful in post-secondary education while in high school. Sometimes Dual Enrollment is referred to as "dual credit" or "concurrent enrollment/credit". 

    Workforce Pathway:  Dual Enrollment students can chose to enroll in one of the CBC workforce programs while in high school (see below). Most of the courses pair well with the CTE offered at the high school. This is a great way to begin taking the courses you will need for the Associate of Applied Science in your chosen career. The first step is to complete the Level I Fundamentals Certificate.   

    Below is a list of career pathways that are available for YOU!


    Computer Information Tech.
    Forensic Science   
         Automotive Technology   
    CIT: Web/Game Design  
    Health Information Technology   
         Administrative Assistant    
    Law Enforcement/Criminal Justice   
         Admin. Asst.- Medical Office    Drafting & Design    Oil & Gas/Process Technology    
         Certified Nursing Assistant    Early Dev. & Education   Welding (four processes available)  


    Academic Pathway: The AS/AA degree has 42 credit hours of general education requirements, three-credit hours of degree designation and 15 hours of core curriculum courses as electives.

    We always encourage students to meet with their high school counselor and Dual Enrollment Specialist on a regular basis to make sure you are taking the appropriate courses for "dual credit". 

    Some of the Benefits of Taking DE Courses: 

    • Get a head start on your college education by earning college credits while in high school; 
    • Exposure to the rigor of a college-level course;  
    • Convenience of of course location (your high school campus, online or at any CBC location)
