 Dual Enrollment


Welcome to Dual Enrollment at CGCC!

CGCC partners with East Valley high schools to offer Dual Enrollment credit for academic and occupational classes.  Dual Enrollment courses are held on high school campuses and are taught by high school instructors who have met community college hiring qualifications.  Through Dual Enrollment we strive to ease the transition from high school to college and to increase the number of college-bound high school students in our community.
 
One of the ten Maricopa Community Colleges, Chandler-Gilbert Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and is a member of the North Central Association (NCA).

Attention students: Registration for fall 2016 Dual Enrollment courses is now closed.

Benefits of Dual Enrollment

For High School Students:

  • Creates an efficient curricular track for general education coursework by eliminating potential duplication/redundancy between advanced/honors high school courses and introductory/survey college courses.
  • Allows students to complete credits that apply toward their general education requirements, thus giving them the opportunity to focus on credits/courses within their major area of study when they enroll at the university.
  • Minimizes the drop in GPA that is experienced by most community college students when they transfer to the university.
  • Provides a cost effective jump-start on a college education, allowing students to earn a four year degree in as little as three years.
  • Allows students to know how their college credits will transfer (instead of the transferability being dependent on an advanced placement test score).

For the High School:

  • Opens dialogue and collaboration between the high school and community college faculty.
  • Provides a positive impact on high school retention and graduation rates (for the baccalaureate-bound students, this impact is most evident during the students' senior year when they elect to remain on the high school campus to earn dual enrollment college credit rather than opt for early dismissal).
  • Causes students to extend themselves academically, because of prerequisites/skills needed for entrance into certain college classes.
  • Extends the high school curriculum beyond the "typical" (for instance, because of Dual Enrollment, high schools now offer Spanish Literature classes to senior students, a class that exists in the community college curriculum, but not the high schools').
  • Enhances the high school teacher's professional growth decision (he/she will elect to earn a Master's degree in a major field of study in order to meet the criteria to teach a community college class; thereby, becoming a true content expert, not just a generalist).
  • Provides an opportunity for high school dual enrollment faculty to become adjunct faculty for the community college.

For the Community College:

  • Opens dialogue and collaboration between the high school and community college faculty.
  • Attracts students back to the community college campuses for further classes.
  • Supports the goal of providing a more seamless transition between high schools and community colleges/universities.
  • Creates students who are more academically prepared to enter the community college/university.

For the Community:

  • Decreases the duplication/redundancy of instruction that can occur between high school and community college curriculum; thereby reducing costs for providing instruction.
  • Motivates students to seek academically challenging coursework; thereby providing the community college graduates who are well-prepared for their chosen field of work.
  • Accelerates the amount of time it takes students to earn their baccalaureate degree; thereby reducing costs to the taxpayer since the amount of state aid paid to the community college is less than that paid to the university.
  • Accelerates the time it takes to turn tax users (students) into taxpayers.
