Get Ahead in Your College Education!
Liberty University Online Academy, in partnership with Liberty University Online, offers a Dual-Enrollment program specifically designed for high school juniors and seniors who want to earn college credit while still in high school. The more classes you take in the Dual Enrollment program, the further ahead you will be — at Liberty University, Liberty University Online or any other college or university of your choice! Each Dual Enrollment course earns half a credit toward your High School diploma and three credits toward your college degree.
Liberty University’s Dual Enrollment program offers two options for high school students looking to earn college credit and is available to high school juniors and seniors who meet the admissions requirements of LUOA.
The first is an “A La Carte” option that allows students in grades 11 and 12 to choose and enroll in select college courses and earn high school credit from LUOA and college credit from LU for the same course.
The second is a full time, year-round, program for students who desire to earn an Associate of Arts Degree while earning their high school diploma. Upon completion of their LUOA high school graduation requirements, dually enrolled students may also obtain an Associate's Degree from Liberty University.
“A La Carte” vs. associate of arts track – what’s the difference?
The “A La Carte” option of our Dual Enrollment program gives your student flexibility by being able to take the courses he or she wants to take, when she wants to take them. With the “A La Carte” option, a student can earn as few as 3 or as many as 36 credit hours. This program is perfect for the student looking to supplement their current high school schedule and earn college credit early!
The Associate of Arts track is for the determined student who desires to take a full-time college schedule while still in high school. Because this is a full time program, your student does not need to do any other coursework outside of the A.A. track. This means that your student will no longer need to attend a traditional school and will become a full time student with Liberty University Online Academy. A student considering our A.A. track needs to be a dedicated, independent learner willing to take courses year-round. The cost and time savings of the A.A. track are definitely worth considering, however, the rigor of the A.A. program is not for every student. We strongly encourage that you speak with one of our Dual Enrollment advisors to help you decide if the “A La Carte” or A.A. track is best for your student!
