Benefits Of Dual Enrollment

Earning college credit before graduating high school can allow students to finish college early, saving in tuition costs and living expenses, including food and housing. CCAC's college credits are among the most affordable in Pennsylvania!

A complete listing of tuition and fees can be found here.

Having introductory classes taken care of before your freshman year in college frees up schedule space to minor in another subject, get a part-time job, or become more involved in extra-curricular activities.

Research shows that dually enrolled students are more likely to stay in college after their freshman year than the average student.

With CCAC being accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, our credits are very transferable to other local colleges and universities as well as hundreds of others across the country.
