Is all dual enrollment classes accepted as high school credit?Answered
I know that dual enrollment classes may not be accepted by some or many colleges as college credit. So I wanted to make sure that it would at least count as high school credit no matter how hard it is.
The class I'm taking is English 150-Thomas More. The class is easy which is why I'm wondering if colleges will still accept it as a normal high school English credit.

Colleges may or may not accept DE classes as fulfilling your HS core curriculum requirements. However if your HS accepts your DE class as fulfilling your English core curriculum requirements, then the college will as well. Therefore, it's important to make sure with your HS admin/counselor that you are receiving the proper DE credit for your English 150 class and that is properly reflected on your HS transcript.
Every high school has different policies regarding dual enrollment classes. Some schools will give high school credit for dual enrollment classes, and they will often count for the same weighted GPA as AP/IB classes in this case. Other schools will award less or no high school credit for dual enrollment classes. I recommend checking with your guidance counselor about your school's policies if you have not asked already. Hope this helps!
Hey! In my experience applying to about 18 schools ranging from my local state school to Brown, I've found that most if not all will accept your dual enrollment class as college credit, which can boost your chances of getting in at some schools and can also knock out some core requirements too. Good luck!
