279 MCPS High School Students On Track To Earn Associate Degree To Be Honored on Tuesday Evening

MCPS and MC have partnered to provide Dual Enrollment opportunities to college ready students at all high schools as well as through Middle, Virtual Middle, and Early College options. The 2nd Annual Dual Enrollment Recognition Ceremony will be held on Tuesday, May 16th at the Universities at Shady Grove from 6:30-8:30 pm. A total of 279 MCPS high school students who are on track to earn their Associate Degree from Montgomery College will be recognized during the event.

Dual Enrollment opportunities allow MCPS college-ready high school students to take college courses during the academic school year.  High school students who enroll and take a college course at any Maryland public college or university are able to do so at a reduced cost. If students select to take courses at MC, and meet qualifications for and separately apply for the MC High School Grant, they may be able to take college courses at no tuition cost.  Students are able to take college courses offered on the high school campus (at select high schools), on a college campus, or online during the fall, winter and spring college terms of their junior and/or senior year.  All college courses on approved list that are successfully completed will receive dual credit by counting toward college and high school credit.  The courses will appear on the high school transcript unless requested that it not during the enrollment process.
