The Dual Enrollment Program allows high school students to earn both high school and college credit simultaneously by taking courses through Outlier.org with credits transcribed by the University of Pittsburgh.
Dual Enrollment only applies to high school students attending a confirmed partner high school.
Benefits of Dual Enrollment
- Dual enrollment helps students save money by allowing them to transfer credits to their future institution.
- Students have the opportunity to experience college-level classes with the added support of known, supportive administrators. Extended schedules cover the material at a pace comparable to their high school class structure.
