Early Admit Description:
Early admission is a form of dual enrollment in which high school students enroll in college courses on a full time basis on a college campus. A student who meets the conditions of an early admission program may be eligible for graduation when state and district graduation requirements are met. No student shall be considered for class ranking unless he/she is in at least part-time attendance at high school; therefore, early admission students are excluded from earning awards or honors based on high school grade point average ranking, such as valedictorian or salutatorian.
