Gilbert High School

As a Dual Enrollment student, you have the opportunity to take college classes at your own high school and graduate from high school with enough credits to be well on your way to earning a college degree. Some high school students earn certificates of completion and/or an associate's degree along with their high school diploma!

Benefits include:

  • Affordable tuition - a single credit is 75% less than the cost of in-state universities
  • No textbook fees
  • Tuition assistance for eligible students with the Maricopa Grant and AZDETAP
  • Course/credit transfers to state universities and many out-of-state schools

Career and Technical Education

Career and Technical Education is about doing, creating and innovating. Students in our programs take what they learn and apply it to something tangible, like building robots or extracting DNA. Every program is hands on, and every program gives students the foundational skills to move forward in a career pathway. Each CTE program leads to college and career pathways, giving students the opportunity to earn industry certificates and dual enrollment credits.

  1. Review the dual enrollment schedule to see which courses are offered for college credit this academic year.
  2. Verify any key academic course offerings with the counselor at your sending high school. Credit may also be earned for AP and/or IB exam scores. Visit the Maricopa Colleges National Standardized Exams webpage to learn more.
