Preparation, especially for engineering studies, is important. Students quickly realize that the pace at which the information is presented and the depth of the subject matter is much greater than what they are used to in high school. Students who dual enroll tend to be better prepared and have a better understanding of the challenges that they will face when they enter college. Dual enrollment not only gives them a “jump start” as far as preparation, but another benefit is the credit they earn can be applied toward their degree, provided that they choose their classes wisely. We’re here to help students make those wise choices.

Benefits of Dual Enrollment
  1. You will earn college credit while still enrolled in high school. Carefully selected courses may satisfy Auburn University degree requirements or may potentially be transferred to another institution, if you choose to attend somewhere other than Auburn.
  2. The credit you earn at Auburn may also potentially be applied to your high school graduation requirements. It’s like taking an AP class…without the exam.
  3. Students who earn dual-enrollment credit are more likely to enroll in college, to have a higher collegiate grade-point average, and to make more timely progress toward college graduation. Finishing in four years or even less becomes even more realistic.
  4. You can earn credit hours now at a deeply discounted rate, reducing your time to graduation once you are a degree-seeking student and saving you thousands of dollars in the process.
  5. You will be taught by Auburn University faculty and have access to Auburn University educational facilities.
  6. You will have the advantage of a collegiate experience when you begin college as a degree-seeking student.
