Early Start/Dual Enrollment

Early Start/Dual Enrollment is the enrollment of a high school (HS) student in a college course for which dual credit (both college and HS credit) is attempted and recorded on both the student’s secondary and postsecondary academic record. A college course offered for Dual Enrollment is: (1) an on-site or online college course taught by the postsecondary institution, or (2) a specially scheduled college course taught at the high school. Postsecondary institutions must adhere to BoR Policy and must comply with all accreditation requirements for awarding credit (BOR 2018).

SUSLA Dual Enrollment Program:

The Southern University at Shreveport Dual Enrollment Program allows high school students the opportunity to enroll in and receive both high school and college credit during normal class hours at their high school.  Participation in the dual credit program enables high school students to get a "head start" on their college career, as well as prepare them for the challenges of college courses. Credits earned under these programs will be applicable toward a degree at Southern University at Shreveport, and are generally transferable to other colleges and universities. However, because each university or college has its own curriculum, Southern University at Shreveport cannot guarantee transferability.

SUSLA Early College Pilot:

The Southern University at Shreveport Early College Program allows high school students the opportunity to take classes online and at the Southern University at Shreveport campus for college credit. Early College Dual enrollment students may or may not earn high school credit for courses taken at the postsecondary institution. This program also gives motivated, college-bound high school students the "jump start" they need before attending college on a full-time basis. Credits earned under this program will be applicable toward a degree at Southern University at Shreveport and are generally transferable to other colleges and universities.  However, because each university or college has its own curriculum, Southern University at Shreveport cannot guarantee transferability.
