The Education Department is pleased to inform you and your student of the opportunity for students to take college courses in high school. Springs Charter Schools, in partnership with Eastern Oregon University (EOU), is proud to offer Dual Enrollment college courses for the Academic 2021-2022 school year.

Students who participate earn college and honors-level high school credit simultaneously.  All courses will be taught by an EOU professor online. All Springs 10th-12th grade students will be allowed to take one college course through EOU per year free of charge.  The one course includes EOU Get Focused! and Brandman Intro to Political Science and Macro Economics dual enrollment courses.

What is the Dual Enrollment Program?
The Dual Enrollment Program is a collaboration between Springs Charter Schools and Eastern Oregon University that allows qualified high school students to earn college and high school credit while meeting graduation requirements. 

Dual Enrollment Objectives:
Creates access for high school students participating in post-secondary education opportunities –

  • Reduces college costs for students and families.
  • Reduces the length of time it takes for students to obtain their academic and/or career goals.
  • Increases college credits awarded to high school students.

Who Can Participate?
High School Students who have the support of their parents, a recommendation from their ES/TOR, and verification from a high school counselor who verifies appropriate college-level capability-based multiple measures including assessment scores, GPA, and current level of academic rigor in progress and making adequate progress towards graduation


Why Take Dual Enrollment Courses?

Begin college early. High school students can begin working on an associate’s degree and/or university transfer requirements while completing as much as one year of college.

Save money. Students and their families can save thousands of dollars on college costs.

Easier transition to college. Students will gain confidence in their ability to do college work and may have an easier transition into post-secondary education.

All Springs 10th-12th grade students will be allowed to take one college course through EOU per year free of charge.  The one course includes EOU Get Focused! and Brandman Intro to Political Science and Macro Economics dual enrollment courses.
