Dual Enrollment(DE) allows high school students to earn college credits that may apply toward graduation at Salish Kootenai College or another college or university. Students enrolled in the DE program can progress toward their next academic goal without having to wait until high school graduation. The DE program can shorten the time required for high school students to complete an undergraduate degree. Completing college courses while still in high school can reduce the cost of post-secondary education. Dual Enrollment courses cost less than regular college tuition.
