As a high school student you can take advantage of the Dual Enrollment program at Woodland Community College to earn dual credit for college classes that your high school may also count towards graduation!
 
Take college classes tuition-free
Dual Enrollment college courses are tuition-free as long as you remain a part-time student (11 units or less) at WCC.
 
Save time and money on your college graduation
Dual Enrollment courses allow you to count one course for both college and high school credit when you used to have to take two separate courses! When you complete high school you could have accumulated enough credits to substantially save time toward graduating from college!
