- What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment allows students to earn college credit through their high school classes. Classes are taught by qualified high school instructors during the regular school day. Credits earned are transferable to most colleges and universities.
- What is the difference between taking courses through Dual Enrollment and the Early College Concurrent program?
Dual enrollment is when students are taking college level courses at their high school with fellow high school students. The high school instructor teaches the course.
Concurrent enrollment gives students the opportunity to take the course on the college campus with other college students. Students will receive the whole experience of taking a college course, preparing them even more for their college career after high school.
- How are my courses applied?
Your college level course may be applied three different ways:
(1) It will apply to your degree program of study at MCC.
(2) The credit may be transferable to the three in-state universities.
(3) With high school approval, students can transfer the college course back to the high school to count for high school credit.
You can see how your credits will transfer by visiting the state curriculum equivalency guide at www.aztransfer.com
- What does it cost?
Tuition is more affordable at a community college than at public or private colleges and universities. Visit Cashier Services for the Tuition fee schedule. *In-county tuition subject to changes by the State Community College Board, $15 registration fee required. Some courses, such as labs, require additional fees. Textbooks are provided at the high schools for Dual Enrollment students at no cost to students.

- What If I don't enroll for the Fall semester?
You can still enroll for Spring! Registration for the spring semester will begin in October.
- What if I change my mind?
It is your responsibility, not the instructor’s, to officially withdraw from MCC. To officially withdraw from a course, you will need to contact an Early College Advisor to complete an add/drop slip. If you withdraw after the 100% refund date, you will still be responsible for paying your tuition. NOTE: Notifying your instructor that you no longer want to take the course is not officially withdrawing from the course.
- What happens if I don’t pay my tuition?
You will be dropped from your class and still owe!
If you don’t pay your tuition by the due date, you will be dropped from your class with a debt still owed to the college. If you withdraw after the 100% refund period, you will still owe a debt to the college and you will receive a grade of "W" on your transcript. Go to the E-cashier pages to sign up for a payment plan.
