Dual enrollment classes weight?

Hey folks, I'm considering taking dual enrollment courses at my local community college. I was wondering how these classes affect my GPA compared to regular high school courses. Do they hold more weight like AP courses, or are they on the same level as regular classes? Thanks in advance!

Hello! Dual enrollment courses can be a great opportunity for academic enrichment and personal growth. In terms of GPA weighting, this can vary depending on your high school's specific policy. Some schools may weight dual enrollment classes similarly to AP or honors courses, while others may weigh them differently or not at all.

To get an accurate idea of how dual enrollment courses will impact your GPA at your high school, I recommend reaching out to your school counselor or reviewing your school's course catalog for information on their specific weighting policies. In general, though, colleges typically view dual enrollment courses favorably, as they demonstrate your willingness to challenge yourself academically and pursue college-level coursework.
