With Southeast's high school program there are three ways to earn college credit: Dual Credit, Dual Enrollment and Early College Credit.
- Dual Credit: You take a college course taught by a highschool teacher. If you pass the class you are awarded both highschool and college credit.
- Dual Enrollment: You take a college course taught by a College professor. If you pass the class you are awarded both highschool and college credit.
- Early College: You take a college course taught by a college professor. If you pass the class you are awarded college credit.
