Take college classes on campus, in your high school or online.

If you're 15 or older, you can take campus-based or online college classes and earn undergraduate credits from Montgomery County Community College. These credits can be transferred to a four-year college or university; however, you should contact your intended college's Admissions Office to ensure that your credits transfer completely.

Our classes are offered in the evenings, on weekends and during the summer. For daytime classes check with your high school to see if you can adjust your schedule and fit in a college course.

Earn dual credit

Through our Dual Credit program, a subset of Dual Enrollment, you can take a college course at your high school and receive both high school and college credits. Check with your guidance counselor to see if your high school participates in dual credit learning.
