General Dual Enrollment Information

Dual Enrollment at MC enables high school students to:

  • Register and attend a Montgomery College course(s) on campus, online, or at their high school site
  • Engage with outstanding college professors and their peers in a collegiate classroom setting
  • Graduate from high school with earned college credit
  • Potentially save money on college tuition
  • Accelerate college completion
  • Gain additional skills and confidence needed to succeed in college 

Students may enroll in a variety of courses at the college, provided they meet the Dual Enrollment standards.  The credits earned may be applied to a degree program at Montgomery College or may potentially be transferred to another institution.

Success Starts Early
In fall 2019, over 1,000 high school students enrolled in college courses at MC! Historically, over 85% of dually enrolled students successfully complete their MC coursework.

Attention Parents!

Parents are encouraged to help support their student towards success in College.  Please review the eligibility requirements with your student and discuss the best options for enrollment. You should also review the financial assistance options that are available for them. Please remember, per federal law, all academic records, rights and responsibilities turn to the student, and the College works primarily with the student during the registration process. However, reviewing the admission and registration procedures may help you stay informed and active during each of the steps. Our Dual Enrollment staff will work with your student and their  school throughout the entire process!

What People are Saying
My son took several classes at Montgomery College in his senior year of high school. Not only did he earn nine credits which transferred to a four-year university, but also he developed an understanding of the rigors and expectations of college-level coursework. And he enjoyed his professors, too.
