Dual Enrollment Mission
The mission of JSU's Dual Enrollment program is to create a community of learners within the high school who have decided that college coursework is an option for them. These students actively participate in dual enrollment courses, navigate through the procedures of a JSU student, and take responsibility for their learning, making them well-equipped to enter any college or university and to be successful freshmen.

The JSU Dual Enrollment Student Representative Program is a leadership organization that allows students to assist JSU with various dual enrollment events, such as virtual visits, parent interest sessions, and other opportunities.
The counselors from each high school will recommend up to two students and we will select 20 students from that pool to be our dual enrollment student representatives.
Join the Dual Enrollment Parent Advisory Board to help us improve our program through monthly virtual meetings with our staff. All parents will receive a JSU t-shirt and sticker, as well as the opportunity to share their story during our parent information sessions online.
