    Students can also receive high school credit and college credit concurrently by enrolling in Dual Enrollment classes starting at the junior level. Taking these courses will help students meet the requirements for an AGEC (Arizona General Education Curriculum). Earning an AGEC means you have completed your general education credits required for any degree in Arizona. Students who earn college credit for Dual Enrollment courses can take years off the time they will spend in college and some can even earn an Associate’s degree while still in high school!
