What is Dual Enrollment?
Verity Dual Enrollment is a home-based program that allows high school students to earn both high school and college credit for the same courses. Save time and money— imagine graduating from high school with more than a year of college completed!
How Does Verity Dual Enrollment Work?
Verity Dual Enrollment students receive curriculum, classes, and personal academic guidance to train them in subjects such as math, literature, and science. Students then take a CLEP® test, a college-level, computer-based exam. Passing this test yields 3-6 credits that can be transferred to thousands of colleges.
Students may complete two 7-week courses per term to earn up to 12 credits. Completing all six courses over three terms yields up to 36 college credits.
- Humanities (Music, literature, drama, art, and architecture)
- College Composition (English structure, style, and citations)
- Social Sciences & History (US & world history, economics, sociology, etc.)
- Biology (Molecular, cellular, organismal, and population biology)
- College Math (Real number systems, functions & graphs, logic, probability, etc.)
- English Literature (Medieval—modern; analyzing and interpreting literature)
When Can a Student Start?
Students are ready for Verity Dual Enrollment after they have had some high-school level training in each subject area. For instance, after 1-2 semesters of high school biology, use the Verity Biology course to take your student’s knowledge to the college level and earn 6 college credits in 7 weeks. A student is typically ready for College Math after completing Algebra 1 & 2. For the other courses, some high school-level training in the subject area is usually sufficient preparation for the Dual Enrollment course.
Why Verity Dual Enrollment?
Dual enrollment usually means that a high school student attends classes at a community college. Verity's Dual Enrollment program provides the benefits of credits but eliminates many downfalls of this traditional system:
- Bible-integrated curriculum and Christian worldview: All subjects are approached from a thoroughly Christian perspective. Strengthen—don’t compromise— your student’s faith!
- Home-based and flexible: Verity's Dual Enrollment is designed to fit in with your student's high school schedule.
- Personal interaction: Each Verity Dual Enrollment student has a personal advisor who gives academic guidance and spiritual encouragement.
- Graded assignments: Students submit writing projects and other assignments which are graded by their advisor. Receive timely feedback to create improvement.
- 12 credits per semester: With Verity Dual Enrollment, students earn approximately twice the number of credits they would earn per semester in another program.
- Transferable credits: CLEP® tests are recommended for accredited credits and are transferable to thousands of colleges. Most students receive 6 credits for each Dual Enrollment CLEP® test they pass. See the colleges that give credits for CLEP® tests.
- Low price, high value: Verity Dual Enrollment costs less than $60 per credit hour, a significant savings over community or other colleges.

Dual Enrollment Schedule
Verity’s dual enrollment program begins with a two-day orientation at the Verity campus in Indianapolis, Indiana. Students receive instruction in topics ranging from test-taking to essay writing. Biblical worldview lectures provide students a framework for beginning college studies. After orientation, students complete the remainder of the program at home.
In the first phase, students complete foundational studies in the Biblical Worldview and the Life Purpose Planning modules. In the second phase, academic studies focus on preparing students to earn college credit through examination. Students complete two six-week academic modules, each culminating in a comprehensive test (such as CLEP® and DSST).
