Jumpstart your college education and begin earning credits that can be applied to an OCC degree or certificate or transferred to a four-year university. If you are sponsored by your school district, tuition costs are covered, making dual enrollment both affordable and flexible. 

Take classes that interest you, at your own pace. We'll verify if you meet pre-requisite requirements. Gain an excellent springboard for your future education. Studies show dual enrollment students experience higher levels of academic success in college. This is when compared to students who do not participate.

What our students have to say

“I learned through my counselor that I could take classes at OCC not offered at my high school and earn college credits toward a degree. The idea of starting college early was very cool to me. I’m now an OCC student graduating soon with an Associate of Arts. I plan to transfer my credits toward a bachelor’s degree. I highly recommend OCC’s dual enrollment program”.  - Katie, Rochester High School
