Rockland Dual Enrollment Program

Welcome to the Rockland Dual Enrollment Program!

 

Established in 1983 our advanced education program has offered local high school students the opportunity to enroll in college level courses on our main campus or at their high school. The program’s goal is to expose high school students to college level coursework early, with the intent goal of greatly enhancing their chances at academic success in higher education.
