High School Students – Dual Enrollment


High School students can take advantage of the Dual Enrollment program at Yuba College to earn dual credit for college classes that the high school may also count towards graduation!

Benefits Include:

  • Save Money – Dual enrollment college courses have no tuition charges as long as you remain a less-than full-time student
  • Save Time – Dual enrollment courses allow you to count one course for both college and high school credit when you used to have to take two separate courses!  When you complete high school you could have accumulated enough credits to substantially save time toward graduating from college!  In 2018 we had a student graduate with her associates degree prior to graduating from high school!
  • Increase likelihood of college completion
