Dual Enrollment at UC
Our dual enrollment program is a unique opportunity for middle and high school students from partner schools to earn college credit before completing high school. Our partner schools are: Academy for Career Exploration, Blackstone Academy Charter, Juanita Sanchez Educational Complex, Ponaganset High School, and Rhode Island Nurses Institute Middle College Charter High School.
When people think of college students, many people tend to think of traditional students who have graduated high school and are now enrolled in a two-or-four-year institution. But as enrollment in dual credit programs across the country has grown, what constitutes a college student has begun to grow with it. This is especially true at University College.
Earn College and Middle or High School Credit Simultaneously
Our program is designed for motivated students, like you, who seek to get a head start on college credits and aren't afraid to be challenged academically. UC has the support systems in place to help you succeed and we offer guidance on potential career paths for students.
Receive an RWU Degree
Through our program, you'll not only be able to earn college credits but potentially also earn a college-level certificate from RWU, putting you one step ahead of others in today's competitive workforce.
Save Money on College Tuition & Finish College Faster
The credits you earn now are the credits you won't have to pay for later when you become an official college student. Save time through dual enrollment. By getting ahead on your credits, you can potentially earn your degree in less time.
Discover What Career Could be Right For You
Dual enrollment is the perfect place to test out potential career paths and majors. Explore courses that give you strong foundations in general education or courses that give you the opportunity to get real-world project experience, like starting a nonprofit or working with community partners on an issue they are facing.
