279 Students Honored at Dual-Enrollment Ceremony (MCPS/Montgomery College)

More than 279 students, the largest number in the state, were honored in a dual-enrollment recognition ceremony earlier this week at the Universities at Shady Grove. These students are dually enrolled at MCPS and Montgomery College. The majority of the students will receive associate degrees from Montgomery College (full list of students recognized below).

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.
