Virginia Western Community College will host a dual enrollment community information meeting from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 20 in Whitman Theater. High school students and their families are invited to attend to learn more about how they can get a jump start on their college education while saving money through dual enrollment.
Virginia Western’s 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 Virginia Western campus, while satisfying the requirements for the completion of junior and senior high school level courses.
By taking college credit classes while still in high school, students can have significant cost-savings when they enroll at a college such as Virginia Western or a four-year university. High School students may even have the opportunity to complete their General Studies Associates Degree or General Education Certificate concurrent with high school graduation.
