Dual Enrollment courses are Palomar College courses, taught by Palomar College hired professors in sections that are exclusively for our HTHNC 10th, 11th, and 12th grade students. Seniors and Juniors are prioritized for Dual Enrollment classes.
HTHNC students that participate and pass these courses can receive university transferable credit (4-year & 2-year). Additionally, both the course and class material (on loan) are free for HTHNC students. Students are responsible for paying their student health fee (about $23 - $24).
Note: Per Palomar College, each course must have a minimum number of students sign-up to run the course. Should a course become unavailable, we will communicate with those students. Classes offered each semester may vary.
