Dual Enrollment Helps High School Students Save on Tuition

College tuition is getting more and more expensive these days. For the freshman and sophomore years, the costs at some of Ohio’s public colleges and universities can be more than $20,000 – just for tuition and fees. That doesn’t include any other costs associated with attending college.

So it’s good to know there are options to make it more affordable. High school students enrolled in any of LCCC’s six dual enrollment programs can take transferable college courses – most for free – saving thousands of dollars in tuition costs, and shortening the time it will take to earn a bachelor’s degree.

“Admissions requirements get more and more competitive every year,” said Stephanie Sutton, Dean of LCCC’s Enrollment Services. “Taking college courses while still in high school can show admissions officers how serious you are about your studies.”

LCCC’s six dual enrollment programs are:

  • Ohio Post-Secondary Enrollment Option B
  • LCCC Credit In Escrow
  • College Opportunity Partnership Program (COPP)
  • College Tech Prep
  • Early College High School
  • Titan College partnership with Lorain High School

In any of these dual enrollment programs students can choose to just take a few courses – or for those really motivated – complete an associate degree, then transfer into the college of their choice at a dramatically reduced cost – either through LCCC’s University Partnership or elsewhere.

Sutton says that there are additional benefits for students who choose to participate in LCCC’s dual enrollment programs. “These students get the experience of taking classes on campus in a collegiate environment, so they’re really more prepared to succeed at the college level when they enroll.”

More than 2,000 high school students from all over Lorain County take advantage each semester of one of LCCC’s dual enrollment programs to jumpstart their college careers.

Sutton stresses that, before applying, students should understand that the dual enrollment programs are an opportunity to take courses at the college level, so the amount of work necessary to succeed is usually much greater than in high school courses. Because dual enrollment courses become part of a permanent college transcript, students should be ready to commit to doing the work required.
