Early College

What's Early College?

It's a great way to earn college credits while you're in high school! 

MCC offers programs that allow eligible high school students to take courses and earn college credit while still in high school. This can save you and your family valuable time and money as you pursue a college education after high school.

Take classes at your high school that earn college credit (Dual Enrollment) or take classes here at MCC while you are in high school (Concurrent Enrollment). If you are a Homeschooler - you can take classes at Mesa Community College either in person or online. 

Concurrent Enrollment

High School students take college courses at college with other college students.

Dual Enrollment

High School students take college courses in high school with fellow high school students.

Homeschool Education
