Dual Enrollment is a college prep academic program offered to Victor Valley Union High School District students. The district has partnered with Victor Valley College (VVC) to provide college courses to students. These courses are taught by VVC Associate Faculty.
Students are admitted to the courses based on the qualifying assessment required by VVC. Dual enrollment creates access for high school students to participate in post-secondary education opportunities while reducing college costs for students and families. Each class may provide transferable units completed for CSU’s, UC’s, and private universities.
Why Take Dual Enrolled Courses?
Begin college early. High school students can begin working on a vocational certificate, associate's degree and/or university transfer requirements while completing as much as one year of college.
Save money. Students and their families can save thousands of dollars of college costs.
Easier transition to college. Students will gain confidence in their ability to do college work and may have an easier transition into post-secondary education.
Who Can Participate?
