What is Dual Enrollment?
Olentangy’s new dual enrollment program gives qualifying juniors and seniors the opportunity to not only receive college credit, but to also attend class in a college setting while being taught by Olentangy teachers who are also college faculty members.
Beginning with the 2013-14 school year, students enrolled in the program will attend their selected courses at Columbus State Community College’s Delaware Branch (CSCC) located at 5100 Cornerstone Drive, off U.S. 23, in Delaware. All public colleges and universities in Ohio accept credit from these courses. In addition, CSCC has transfer agreements with a number of private institutions in Ohio, including Otterbein and Ohio Wesleyan universities.
For more information, see the Dual Enrollment FAQ. Students interested in enrolling in the program should visit their school’s guidance counselor.
