Twice as Strong with DE at BCC
As a Dual Enrolled student, you can earn college credit while you finish high school.
Take ownership of of your academic future with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA)
FERPA is a federal law that transfers ownership of your educational record from your parents to you, even if you’re under 18. This means you will be considered a college student if you enroll in a BCC course, regardless of age.
For more information on FERPA, visit our FERPA resource site.
The Dual Enrolled Students Club (DESC) was founded in Fall of 2022 as a club for high school students who are taking, or want to take classes, at BCC. DESC aims to create a community for dual enrolled students to connect with each other, share resources they’ve found helpful, discuss how to manage schoolwork, and overall provide support with the processes of dual enrollment.
Currently, in addition to holding regular meetings every other week, the club is working on planning out events for the spring semester; such as promotion of summer classes and study jams at BCC. For more information, contact: email@example.com
“I heard about this program through my friends at school. I loved that they explained that you can make connections here and really further yourself, and get college credits. I thought that was really helpful so I can put it on my resume to help me get into a college like UCLA. I made connections with people like Skylar (BCC Counselor) who really want to see me and my friends as scholars grow and get into our dream schools and have a good and successful life. It helps me prepare for what college work would be like. When it comes to a sense of work ethic and how to hold myself up for studying for college I think this is a great start. BCC is a great institution and I would love to take some classes to help further my skills in Mechanical Engineering and Calculus and Math.”
