Dual Enrollment

The cost of going to college continues to rise, making it feel out of reach for many students. CCC offers an alternative, less expensive way to earn college credit while still in high school.  Our Dual Enrollment (DE) program follows Arizona Revised State Statute 15-1821.01 and is designed to give high school Juniors and Seniors and opportunity to earn college credit at a significantly reduced tuition rate. Beginning in Fall 17, the tuition for Dual Enrollment Arts and Science (A&S) courses will be $10 per credit hour and for Career and Technical Education (CTE) courses there will be a complete tuition waiver (no cost to the student). This is a cost savings of $95 per credit for A&S courses and a cost savings of $105 per credit for CTE courses. Most of the CCC DE courses are transferable to other colleges. CCC offers a variety of courses including core subjects, Career and Technical Education and Arts and Science courses (please refer to our DE Course Catalogue).


DE courses allow students to earn both high school and college credits for courses they take at the high school with their high school teachers. Dual enrollment teachers must meet the same credentialing requirements as on campus college instructors teaching the same course. They teach to the same college curriculum and courses are designed to equal the college learning experience that the student would get sitting in a CCC classroom.  Teachers use the same college textbook or one approved by the Dean that contains equivalent higher level information.  Students enrolled in DE courses will receive CCC credit and an official CCC transcript upon satisfactory completion of their class.


To enroll in a DE course, students need to go through the DE enrollment process which must be completed through their high school.  Registration at CCC cannot accept DE applications directly.

For college credit, students need to complete: 

  • CCC Application for Special Admission
  • Valid photo ID or other proof of residency
  • Class Registration form
  • Course Prerequisite Met (Required Accuplacer placement testing or ACT/SAT scores; required course)
  • Payment of class fees to CCC by deadline


For more information on the DE student experience please refer to DE Student Handbook.

For more information on courses available through DE please refer to our DE Course Catalog.
