Please contact us to enquire about the availability of other courses which might interest you; this list is representative, rather than exhaustive.
You’re wondering… is it worth it? We can confidently tell you: yes. Tuition for dual enrolled students is $150 per semester credit hour; this cost does not include some University fees and textbook costs. Our dual enrollment program can be a great investment toward a college education here at Trinity.
Courses you pass are added to your official college transcripts. You could transfer these somewhere else for college… but if you enroll at Trinity College as a freshman, you’ll get a tuition credit for up to nine hours of the dual enrollment classes you took. In other words, you’ll already have 9 hours.
