The Dual Enrollment Program at BHCC enables high school students from area districts to earn high school and college credits simultaneously, while gaining familiarity with the college experience. The Dual Enrollment staff advises students on procedures for College Placement testing, course selection, BHCC enrollment and college expectations. Staff works closely with BHCC faculty and high school guidance counselors to monitor student performance, attendance and completion of assignments. Dual Enrollment staff ensures that students are connected to the many academic support programs and resources on campus. All classes are taught by BHCC faculty.
Dual Enrollment Models:
Individual Dual Enrollment
Students take college courses on campus at BHCC. Students may enroll individually, or through partnerships with area schools or districts or as homeschoolers.
The cohort model allows high school students at our partner high schools and community-based organizations to take college-level courses at their high school/CBO along with their peers.

Early College Model
Students in Early College programs participate in an accelerated dual enrollment pathway program from high school to college, allowing them to graduate high school with 12 or more college credits.
