College Connection Concurrent Enrollment

Welcome To College Connection

Over 20 college level courses are taught in high schools throughout Dutchess and Putnam counties during the regular school day. Taught by high school teachers who are also college part-time instructors, these courses give high school students the opportunity to experience a challenging, college-level course while still in high school.

Qualified students earn high school and college credit concurrently, with no tuition costs to the school or the student. College credit is transferable to most two and four year colleges and universities.
