College Courses and Dual Credit Students earn college credit through the dual enrollment program with Scottsdale Community College (SCC) or University of Arizona (U of A).
Dual Credit Courses Offered at NDP Dual Enrollment (DE) courses are college level courses offered on campus at NDP. You can begin taking DE courses freshman year. For an additional fee, you can receive college credit for these courses and begin your college GPA while in high school. This saves time and money by getting those college credits completed early.
Not every college will accept Dual Enrollment transfer credits. All Arizona state universities do, and a good resource is www.aztransfer.com. For out of state universities/colleges, check their individual transfer credit policies to know if the DE credit will transfer.
