Post Secondary Enrollment Option/Dual Enrollment Programs

What is the Post Secondary Enrollment Option/Dual Enrollment Program?

The Post-Secondary Enrollment Option/Dual Enrollment Programs are primarily designed to provide qualified and highly motivated high school students access to college level coursework and have the opportunity to earn college credit. The High school credit is given at the discretion of the home high school and the college credit is given on a Notre Dame College transcript. The college credits are fully transferable to Notre Dame College and are transferable to other institutions at the discretion of those institutions.

Students may take courses on the NDC campus or through the NDC Online Program. The online courses are eight-weeks in length and are completely asynchronous.

Prospective students considering the PSEOP/Dual Enrollment program at Notre Dame College should meet with their guidance counselor to discuss this college credit program and determine if it is the right choice for them.
