Welcome Indiana Online Students
Welcome Indiana Online students, this page is unique and just for you! Below you will find answers to some common questions about dual enrollment, links to MyPortal, Student Orientation Page (that has tons of additional resources and links to help you with your dual enrollment courses), IT support information, and the links to the Application and Student Agreement Form.
What is Dual Enrollment and how is it different than Dual Credit?
Dual Enrollment and Dual Credit are similar, but not always the same. Dual Enrollment is the umbrella term used to describe when high school students are simultaneously enrolled in some form of high school or home school while also enrolled in college courses. Both are great opportunities that allow students to earn college credits while still in high school. With dual credit, those credits earned are not just college credits but also apply to their high school diploma as well.
What are the benefits of Dual Enrollment?
There are a lot of benefits from taking dual enrollment courses including:
- Drastically reduced costs
- Prepares you to transition into the world of college
- Challenges you academically by raising the level of expectations
- Credits earned will transfer on the Transfer Credit Library (means if the course we are offering is on the Core Transfer List, if you earn that credit with us, it will transfer across Indiana to any public university)
