Welcome! Thank you for exploring the Dual Enrollment website.
Virginia Western Community College's dual enrollment program promotes effective teaching and learning through quality instruction, programs, and services designed to meet the needs of a diverse student body.
The VWCC dual enrollment program is committed to providing high school age students who can demonstrate college readiness with the opportunity to complete college-level classes at their local high schools or on the VWCC campus, while satisfying the requirements for the completion of junior and senior high school level courses.
On campus opportunities for high school and home schooled students are available through the college's regularly scheduled classes and through the dual enrollment specialty programs. These programs embark on an extensive initiative involving career and technical education programs and courses. These programs and courses are related to various occupations which require one to two years of training and may allow students to go to work immediately after their training is completed. Even more importantly, most of these career and technical programs are designed to allow students to move into a career pathway which will lead to two-year and four-year college degree programs.
Dual enrollment classes that are taught at the high school by VWCC credentialed high school instructors and some of the campus specialty programs may be offered at a reduced tuition rate.
Courses taught by Virginia Western faculty on-line or on campus will require the standard tuition.
High School students may have the opportunity to complete their General Studies Associates Degree or General Education Certificate concurrent with high school graduation. Students should contact their high school guidance department for further information and refer to the HB1184 Plan (PDF) for their school division.
Online Tutoring is available by appointment through the The Academic Link during regular hours of operation to any student who needs assistance with any VWCC course. Tutoring sessions are delivered through Blackboard Collaborate, which has audio, video, and screen-sharing capabilities.
