Dabney S Lancaster Community College's dual enrollment program is designed to provide high school students with the opportunity to complete college-level classes at their local high school. Students can complete a variety of college-level courses, usually at their own high school, which will help the student complete high school graduation requirements, and also serve to complete college course requirements. These courses may include the general education courses typically associated with freshman and sophomore college level courses and the introductory courses offered in our technical/occupational career programs. We invite all eligible students to consider taking DSLCC courses through our dual enrollment program

We look forward to serving you!
