Dual Enrollment Statement
You have elected to enroll in a college level course with high expectations. Each course is different in its requirements to include theory, application, and depth of reflection and research. Occasionally, the title of a course has been chosen to broadly describe the course content. Please do not make any assumptions about the course based on the title or your preferences for learning a subject. As a Dual Enrollment student, you should communicate with the instructor to gauge your ability to meet these requirements within the first 2 days of the course--prior to census--giving you time to select another option if you believe the course requirements might extend beyond your current level of learning. Course expectations will neither change nor be amended for you as a Dual Enrollment student since courses are designed to meet certain learning objectives and produce specific learning outcomes.
