Seventy-five educators from 41 area high schools attended a Dual Enrollment Summit Thursday, March 30 at the NSU student union. The guidance counselors and administrators were greeted by Vic the Demon and NSU cheerleaders as they arrived.
NSU’s Dual Enrollment Program enables eligible high school students to take college classes while still in high school. It is entirely possible to graduate from high school with an Associate’s Degree from NSU in addition to your high school diploma. NSU has agreements to offer courses in 80 high schools in the area, with 2,000 students taking advantage of this superb opportunity. In our local area, each high school in Natchitoches, Red River, and Sabine parishes offers dual enrollment at NSU.
The conference featured presentations on the enrollment process for students, eligibility and demonstrations of courses and software. Current NSU students who were dual enrollees while in high school told the audience how the experience helped them advance in their collegiate lives.
NSU’s Dual Enrollment Program is an excellent way for the young people of our parish to take charge of their future.
