Dual Enrollment Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

It’s an opportunity for eligible high school students to earn lower-division college credit during their regular high school classes. The credits are treated the same as regular college credit, and are transferable to other Maricopa Community Colleges, Arizona’s state universities, and many out-of-state colleges.

Earn College & High School Credit - Dual Enrollment courses meet at the high school during the regular high school day. All courses are taught by college certified high school instructors using the college curriculum and text.

Transferable Credit - Dual Enrollment students receive, upon request, a Scottsdale Community College transcript that may be submitted to the college of their choice. Articulation agreements are in place among all Arizona public colleges and universities, as well as several Arizona private colleges. Since Scottsdale Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and is a member of the North Central Association, students are generally successful in transferring courses to other colleges and universities as well.

Save Money - Tuition rate is currently $85 per credit hour (the same as all Maricopa Community College students). This is approximately one third the tuition cost of in-state universities and is significantly less than private and out-of-state universities. Students will also save on book costs and lab fees (which average $864 annually per student at Arizona's three major universities).

Bridge to College - Students learn and adapt to the rigors of college course work while in a familiar setting. Students learn skills and behaviors that will aid them in college. Having taken college courses will ease students' fears about college.

Reduce Course Duplication - Students will often be required to take courses in college that duplicate what they have done in high school. By earning college credits for the work they complete in high school, students will not be required to take courses in college that duplicate their previous studies.
Early Occupational Skills - Students desiring to enter the world of work after high school can reduce or eliminate the time required for occupational training. Occupational courses also allow academically bound students to learn skills that will get them better paying jobs during their college careers.

Dual enrollment students must be attending a participating high school and meet the general eligibility requirement of either scoring “proficiency” on the AZMerit or PSAT or SAT or ACT or completion of the Reading Accuplacer test. English and math classes require a qualifying placement test score in the subject area.

Dual Enrollment Admissions Requirements

Contact the Testing Center for testing guidelines and placement options.

The in-state, in-county tuition rate is $85 (in-state) per credit hour. There is an additional $15 registration fee per semester for each college you do dual enrollment through. (Tuition is subject to change. and dependent upon residency information provided during the completion of the Admissions Application.)

It is the student’s responsibility to drop the class through one of the following methods:

Contact the SCC Admissions and Records Office at (480) 423-6100 with your name, college ID number, high school, and the class you want to add, drop, or change. Only classes dropped before the semester payment deadline will remove tuition fees or initiate a refund for tuition already paid. Dropping a class after the semester payment deadline will result in a grade of W on your transcript, and you will still be responsible for paying tuition, or be ineligible for a refund if you’ve already paid tuition.

Students are responsible for a communication sent to your Maricopa email. You can forward your Maricopa email to and email account you frequently check.

Think of your MEID (User ID) as your user name to access online services with the college. You’ll use this to log in to My Maricopa and access your student email. Your college ID number is used to identify your unique student account when corresponding with college staff.

If you have forgotten your MEID: go to My Maricopa, click the Student Center icon. Next click the “forgot your MEID?” link.

For your college ID number: go to My Maricopa, click the Student Center icon, then log in with your MEID (User ID) and password. Scroll down to the Personal Information section, and click “Demographic Data”. The first item listed next to ID is your college ID number.
