DUAL ENROLLMENT Understanding its Benefits Courtney Hill M.Ed. DE Coordinator Manassas & Woodbridge Campuses Debunking the community college myth Community College has come a long way place to go if can t get in any other better place (place of last resort) Choosing NOVA is a choice many students are making because of its reputation, small class sizes, ability to live at home, and SAVE money and time. What is NOVA/NVCC? One of 23 members of the Virginia Community College System 76,000+ credit students and 2,600 faculty and staff Largest educational institution in VA and Second largest community college in U.S. 6 Campus Locations and 4 Educational Centers Accredited by the Commission on Colleges for SACS Offer more than 160 Degrees at Associates level More than 1000 recent PWCS graduates attend NOVA each year Recognized for teaching excellence Recognized as a preferred 2-year transfer school by many Virginia universities What is Dual Enrollment? An enrichment program that allows eligible high school students the opportunity to take courses and earn high school and college credit at the same time NOVA college courses may fulfill Virginia high school graduation requirements and begin a college transcript towards a degree or certificate program House Bill 1184 Brings New Opportunities Requires local school divisions and community colleges to develop agreements allowing high school students to complete an Associate s Degree or a one year Uniform Certificate of General Studies from a community college concurrent with a high school diploma. Requires communication to parents and students about the agreement and the ways the certificate or degree can be earned.

AP Versus DE Advancement Placement has been around for years while DE is relatively new in VA AP open enrollment vs. DE placement testing DE teachers must meet requirements of college professors AP articulated credit while DE is guaranteed AP structured to the test DE is a college class Weighted GPA bump 1.0 vs. 0.5 Challenge Index: What it really assesses Challenge Index: Ranks schools nationally based on how challenging they are. Directly tied to AP. Many people use this indicator to determine the strength of a particular school.???did You Know??? The formula used counts the number of students who TAKE the AP tests (sit for test). How they perform on the tests is not at all factored!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Challenge Index incentivizes schools/districts to increase the number of students taking the AP examination. Their challenge ranking depends on this. AP intended for top performing students who would most likely be successful in the course AND on the examination. For students who are ready for the challenge of a college course but may not test well, DE may be the better match. Enrollment options for college course work while in high school Dual Credit Class taken for high school and college credit Can be taken on-campus, online or through contract Dual Enrollment within the high school Concurrent Enrollment Class taken ONLY for college credit Can be taken on-campus or online Types of college credit available to high school students General Education (transferable)- Designed specifically to transfer to four-year college Included in NOVA s Associate of Art and Associate of Science Degrees Career and Technical Education (CTE)- Can transfer to a four year school but that is not its initial purpose Designed for NOVA s Associate or Applied Art and Sciences degrees (AAA and AAS) Delivery Options On-campus Taught by NOVA faculty on campus with curricular and Dual Enrollment students Online through NOVA s Extended Learning Institute (ELI) Taught entirely online by NOVA faculty through Blackboard with curricular and Dual Enrollment students Contract courses within certain high schools Taught by high school faculty who are credentialed NOVA adjunct faculty Taught entirely within the school day at the high school Class only contains Dual Enrolled high school students Contract DE Over 30, 000 students in Northern Virginia high schools received college credit through NVCC contract dual enrollment! In fall 2015, NVCC enrolled almost 5000 contract students in DE almost double from last fall s numbers. Factors Contributing to increased contract Dual Enrollment participation: Cost: Price tag for college tuition raises every year. Convenience: Taking college courses in your high school. Competiveness: Students want more rigorous courses; Head start on college coursework. Financial Analysis NOVA in-state rate or $ per credit hour. NOVA out-state rate or $369 per credit hour. GMU $448 (in)/$1308 (out) Contract DE last year was 15% NOVA s instate tuition rate or $24.56 per credit hour How much does Contract DE cost this year? Not a dime.
