Can I transfer college credits from high school?

Hey CollegeVine! I'm a junior and I've taken some dual enrollment courses at my local community college. Will these credits transfer to a four-year college, and if so, how do I go about making sure they're accepted? Thanks in advance!

Hello! It's great that you've taken advantage of dual enrollment courses during your high school years. In most cases, these credits can be transferred to a four-year college. However, the transferability of credits depends on a few factors such as the specific college you'll be attending, the course content, and the accreditation of the community college where you took the courses. To ensure that your credits are accepted, I would recommend following these steps: 1. Keep a record of your course syllabi, as some colleges may request them for evaluation. 2. Reach out to the admissions or registrar's office at the four-year colleges you're interested in and inquire about their credit transfer policies for dual enrollment courses. 3. Request an official transcript from your community college after you've completed the courses, and submit it to the four-year college you'll be attending. Keep in mind that it's always a good idea to check with the college you plan to attend and start this process early. Good luck!
