Things to be aware of 0 Dual enrollment students are treated the same as any other college student and are expected to adhere to all college rules – including the college calendar. 0 Dual enrollment courses become a part of the student’s permanent college transcript. 0 College professors will afford you a tremendous amount of “FREEDOM TO FAIL.” Don’t expect handholding. 0 College professors CANNOT speak with parents about student attendance, grades, etc. unless the student signs a waver form.
