Dual Enrollment Information

VPT REQUIREMENTS, effective 3/19/2020: Due to limited access to the VPT during the 2020 COVID-19 emergency, the VA Community College Chancellor has temporarily approved a modification to policy that adds flexibility to use additional measures for dual enrollment admission and placement. The following guidelines are for enrolling students in summer and fall 2020 terms at VWCC:

Dr. Kathy Beard from VA Western Community College came and spoke to our potential dual enrollment students on January 31st, 2020! We have uploaded her presentation so that parents and students may access it.

Students have the option to take dual enrollment courses during their school day at VA Western Community College or Dabney S. Lancaster Community College. Students will receive a weighted high school credit for these courses, and can take any course that can be applied to a degree or certificate program.
Students will be responsible for knowing community college registration deadlines, registering themselves for their college courses, and paying tuition directly to the community college.


Students must work with their LB School Counselor to ensure they are on track to meet their BCPS high school graduation requirements. Failure to register for a course needed for graduation OR dropping a course without consulting with their School Counselor could result in not being able to graduate on time. Students who are taking dual enrollment classes either at LB or at the community college are responsible for meeting all requirements for their classes, including taking the VA Placement Test on the community college campus. Please refer to the registration night presentation that is posted in our Registration section for more information on which classes will be offered for dual enrollment at LB this school year. Payment for dual enrollment classes taken at the community college will be paid directly to the community college. Payment for dual enrollment classes taken at LB will be paid directly to LB.


We have outlined below the steps each student needs to take if they are planning on enrolling in a dual enrollment course at VWCC or DSLCC for next school year:


1. Meet with their LB School Counselor to discuss options of courses the student is planning on enrolling in.


2. Apply to the community college in which the student will be taking the course. If the student has already taken a dual enrollment course before, they are already part of the community college system and do not need to reapply.

  

3. Fill out the “High School Enrollment Approval Form” found here: Approval Form. This form must be filled out in its entirety. Bring this form to your School Counselor and she will have Mr. Dewease sign it. She will send it over to VWCC to get you enrolled in your class. Once we have record of your enrollment in a dual enrollment course, we will build your high school schedule around that.
4. VWCC communicates with their DE students through their own email system, so please be sure to check your VWCC student email that was provided to you by the college. This is where they will be sending you information regarding how to pay for your class. All DE classes taken on the community college campus are at full tuition.
