Dual enrollment classes, in which high school students take college courses for both high school and college credit, are a great way to save money and time in pursuing a college degree. Some students take classes that will count toward their general education requirements at the university level, while others choose more specialized classes that allow them to explore a specific field of study. Think you might want to major in history, biology, or health services? Take a class and find out!
