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 local high school students with the opportunity to complete college-level classes at their local high schools, while satisfying the requirements for the completion of their junior and senior high school courses.
VWCC is pleased to announce that we can offer dual enrollment classes that are taught at the high school by high school instructors at no cost to the students.
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.
In addition, Virginia Western is embarking 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 will 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 training programs.
The Virginia Western Regional Academy for Advanced Technology will offer a variety of advanced training programs in local high schools and at the center itself on the College's campus.
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.
