College Course Options

high school students

Dual Enrollment students may typically take college courses at an MC campus, online, or at their home high school (where available). Students must meet the prerequisite and assessment level requirements for each enrolled course. 

NOTE that Montgomery College is currently offering all college courses remotely for the fall and winter due to COVID-19.  Courses for the spring will start as remote delivery, however, certain pre-designated courses may move to on-campus based on changes to the state and college guidelines.   For specific course scheduling and more information on Dual Enrollment, please contact the appropriate MCPS Dual Enrollment Program Assistantnew window (DEPA)  or MC Academic Coordinatornew window

MCPS students may also earn high school credit for their college course.  Prior to enrollment, students should review the list of MCPS approved College coursesnew window and complete  the MCPS' required Dual Credit Refusal Form (PDF, Get Adobe Acrobat PDF Reader.-Link opens in new window.)  before deciding on their College course options.  


Take a Course Online

All DE students may take any college-level, credit-bearing course provided they meet all assessment levels/pre-requisites.  Please consult the Montgomery College Schedule of Classes for course locations, descriptions, and requirements.  An MCPS DEPA or MC Academic Coordinator will handle your course registration.   

Please note if you are planning to enroll in at least one online course, it is recommended that you complete the online learning pre-assessment tool.  Online courses are structured differently, and this assessment is a good resource to determine your level of readiness for taking one.  It takes 10-15 minutes to complete.

For detailed information on how to register for courses, please visit our DE Admission and Registration Procedures page.
