Dual Enrollment

NCC Dual Enrollment with Participating Nassau County High Schools

SUNY Nassau Community College provides high school students with the opportunity to get ahead on their college career and take a college-level course while still in high school. Courses are taught during normal school day hours by high school teachers who meet the minimum qualifications of the Nassau Community College Faculty. These courses are designed to give high school students the opportunity to experience a challenging, college-level course while still in high school.

Qualified students earn high school and college credit concurrently, at a discounted tuition rate. Credits can be applied to Nassau Community College or transferred to most two- and four-year colleges and universities.

High school students participating in the program are considered registered SUNY Nassau students and are required to meet the College’s student standards. While participating the Dual-Enrollment program students will have access to the excellent resources the College offers such as computer labs, library, student services center, book store, etc.

Once students have completed a dual enrollment course they can request an official transcript from the Registrar’s Office and have it sent to their intended college for a review of transfer credit.  Transcripts can be requested via the Registrar’s Office.

  • During fall and spring terms, beginning the fourth week and up to the end of the ninth week of classes, the instructor’s approval is required for withdrawal. The approval indicates that the student has met with the instructor and discussed the withdrawal. The instructor may not refuse approval.
