    • Enhances the ability and skills to do college-level work and aids students in gaining confidence for college success
    • Students may earn enough credit to gain advanced standing when admitted to college full-time and are entitled to register earlier for classes
    • Save money by receiving free or reduced cost college credit and shorten the amount of time, after high school, required to complete at college
    • Credits are transferable to all college/universities within the Oregon University System and many other institutions outside the state
    • Students entering the military may earn higher rank with earned college credit
    • Research shows Dual Credit students are more likely to finish college and earn more credits by the 2nd year of college
