What is Dual and Concurrent?

Western is pleased to work with school districts and BOCES/BOCHES throughout their service area to offer a dual and concurrent program to high school students. 

Western encourages all students and parents to talk to their high school counselor to see how to enroll in Western's dual and concurrent program. Guidelines are unique to each individual school district so reaching out to the high school counselor can give students and parents the most up to date information. 

What is a Dual course/credit(s)? 

Any course taught by a Western faculty for which the student meets established entry requirements. Students enroll individually in these courses and must meet the same course requirements as any other enrolled student. Students in these courses are being allowed to count the completed course for both high school and Western credit.

What is a Concurrent course/credit(s)?

Courses that are offered in the high school during the regular school day taught by high school faculty who are approved Western adjuncts. These classes meet the same requirements as the course that is taught on-campus and students must meet established entry requirements. Students in these courses are being allowed to count the completed course for both high school and Western credit.
