    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 & for Bee county residents tuition & general use fees are waived). 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".
