You can review applicable policies and procedures, such as withdrawing from a course, by visiting the CCBC website at ccbc.edu/policiesandprocedures.
The credit course schedule is available under "Course Search" at MyCCBC.
General education courses that dually enrolled high school students have previously taken include, but are not limited to: College Algebra, English Composition, History, Introduction to Information Technology, General Psychology, and Principles of Sociology.
Dual Enrollment students are not limited to particular course offerings. As long as prerequisites and placement scores are met and the counselor/school district approves the course, students are permitted to register in a variety of disciplines.
CCBC makes every effort to ensure that Dual Enrollment students are registered for the classes they plan to take. However, students should refer to the academic calendar for registration dates.
Once the College has all the required documents, students are registered for the courses they have selected. A copy of their schedule is mailed to the address on their application.
