Dual Enrollment

Do you want to get a jump start on your college plans? UNO’s High School Dual Enrollment Program, also known as the Early Start Program, is a great way to take classes for dual credit (high school and college credit). High school students in good academic standing can enroll in college courses at UNO provided they meet the minimum admission requirement for degree seeking student.


  • By earning college credit while attending high school, you may be able to reduce the time and money you’ll spend in college.
  • You will become prepared with the work load of a college course.

There are three ways you can attend UNO as a high school student

  1. Dual Enrollment allows you to take up to 11 semester hours of credit in the fall and/or spring, depending on your high school schedule.

  2. Summer Enrollment allows you to take courses during the summer once you are in high school.

  3. Full-time Enrollment enables you to attend UNO full time during your senior year. You may be eligible to receive your diploma from your high school, after successfully completing 24 credit hours at UNO.
