• DUAL-ENROLLMENT COURSE OFFERINGS 

    Dual Enrollment is a program that allows high school students to enroll in college-level courses while still in high school. Students take approved courses, taught by our teachers at RHS.  Students enrolled in our dual enrollment courses may also register with the participating college and receive college credits at reduced tuition.  This is an excellent way for our students to get a feel for college level learning. 

    Randolph High School currently partners with the County College of Morris, Fairleigh Dickinson University and Rider University, to offer students the opportunity to earn college credits in approved dual enrollment courses. These courses are taught at RHS by our staff. Dual enrollment enables high school students to gauge their ability to do college work prior to full-time college study. Upon successful completion of a dual enrollment course, students are awarded college transcripts that record credits earned. These credits are transferable to hundreds of colleges and universities nationwide.  

     

    PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS A PER-CREDIT TUITION CHARGE ASSOCIATED WITH DUAL ENROLLMENT AND ALL TEACHERS CAN DISCUSS THIS WITH INTERESTED STUDENTS.
