Dual Enrollment with American River College
What is Dual enrollment (DE)?
Through our Dual Enrollment Program, students have the unique opportunity to take a college course at his or her high school and receive college units while also fulfilling high school credits. Dual enrollment courses are offered at no cost to students.
ARC’s Dual Enrollment programming seeks to equitize students’ access to, and success in, higher education, especially those from historically underserved populations in the greater Sacramento region by providing clear and attainable pathways into Los Rios and beyond.
