Questions of the Day – Dual Enrollment & Service Projects


How do dual enrollment classes work and are they worth taking?

Dual enrollment courses are a great way for homeschooled students to take college classes while still in high school. Many colleges offer them for high school students, including homeschoolers. Check with your local college or university to see if they offer a dual enrollment program. I wrote an entire article on the dual enrollment process last week. You can view it here.

How important are service projects to colleges?

Local community colleges and some state schools will not expect or require service projects. However, most private colleges and state universities will want to see that your student has been “giving back.” I would recommend that you document any service projects your son or daughter has been involved. If you keep a portfolio, this would definitely go in there.
