Dual Enrollment - Steps to Becomming a Dually Enrolled Student

WHO - Dual Enrollment is for students taking the College level class at the local high school within Pearl River Community College’s six-county district, online through PRCC's eLearning, or at one of the PRCC campus locations.

WHERE / WHEN - The time and day of the class depends on the type of class.  Classes at the local high schools are taught during the day as part of the student's regular school day and by a high school instructor who has been approved by the College administration.  Online classes follow the format of all courses offered through eLearning, and on campus classes could potentially be during the day, at night, or on weekends.

COST - Students pay a fee of $100 for the Dual Enrollment course. This includes all fees associated with the course as well as the cost of the ebook.

HOW - To take a Dual Enrollment class at a local high school, students should contact their local high school principal or counselor to make inquiries about possible opportunities. Online and on campus classes opportunities are available by contacting Ms. Cindy Wells at 601-403-1374 or dualenrollment@prcc.edu.

In order to host Dual Enrollment courses, the high school must complete the following:

  1. Dual Enrollment Request - HIgh schools may fax (601-403-1009) or email (cwells@prcc.edu) the request. Allow one week from the time the request is submitted for the class(es) to be approved.

The approval process for an instructor can vary depending on the how quickly all components of the application packet are received.
