N.C.'s Online-Credit Program More Than Triples Enrollment

Online dual credit programs are certainly proving popular with North Carolina students. In just two years, the number of high school students who registered for online college-credit courses was up to more than 5,400 in 2009, compared with about 1,400 in 2007, according to state officials.

The Learn and Earn program, which I wrote about several years ago, allows students to earn college credit while completing their high school program. They can do so by attending one of the state's Learn and Earn high schools, which are housed on or close to college campuses, or through the online program offered by the state university system and community colleges.
