FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is Concurrent Enrollment?
Concurrent enrollment, also called Dual Enrollment, is an opportunity for high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors to earn college credit for courses taught at Del Val by Del Val teachers in conjunction with our partner colleges.
What are the benefits?
Concurrent enrollment can offer students a chance to begin earning college credits at a reduced rate. For example, in the 21-22 school year, a 3-credit course at RVCC is $504 ($168/credit), but through this program, students only pay $210.
The rate for Seton Hall University Project Acceleration is $100/credit.
The rate for RVCC Concurrent Enrollment is $210/course.
The rate for Kean University Dual Enrollment $300/course.
What schools does DV offer this through?
Del Val is currently working with Raritan Valley Community College, Seton Hall University, and Kean University.
Does earning credit mean I have to attend Raritan Valley Community College, Seton Hall University, or Kean after I graduate?
No, the credits are earned through the specific college, but you have the ability to request that your school of choice accept your transfer credits.
How do I know if my credits will transfer to my college?
Please call your college of choice and ask them directly what they will accept; this is really the best way to confirm.
You can also visit njtransfer.org to begin exploring transfer equivalencies within New Jersey.
Please note that njtransfer.org alone cannot be used to determine course equivalencies for courses taken at NJ community colleges while the student is in high school or for courses taken at the high school and recorded on a college transcript.
You can also visit https://www.transferology.com to view a limited transfer list based on other students' past experiences.
Are there restrictions from colleges as to what they will accept?
Yes. For example, here is the policy from Rutgers:
Dual-enrollment courses reported on a college transcript will be considered for Rutgers credit, subject to the following requirements:
- No more than four dual-enrollment courses (not to exceed 15 credits) may transfer into the Rutgers Business School.
- No more than two dual-enrollment courses per semester are transferable.
- Minimum grade that must be earned is a B.
- If the student was concurrently enrolled in the parallel Advanced Placement (AP) course for that academic discipline, and scored below a 4 on the AP examination, no academic credit will be considered for the dual-enrollment course.
My current college never received my concurrent enrollment course(s) transcript. Why?
Students must request each of the transcripts directly from the colleges. Use the links found here. Fees may apply.
How are my grades for the colleges calculated?
For RVCC, the grade is calculated using ONLY the RVCC-required tasks (4 papers, process work, exams), whereas SHU, Kean University, and NJIT utilize the same grade that is assigned on the DVR transcript.
Can I be exempt from my midterm or final exams or other work in a concurrent enrollment course?
If you are taking the course for college credit, the exams and the tasks are a part of the certified course syllabus and therefore students must take/complete them.
What is Del Val's CEEB Code?
What is the benefit of taking the AP test?
If you score high enough, your college may offer double credits (for example, Rider University offers 6 credits if you score 5/5 on the AP English exam). Check out your course(s) and college(s) here: https://apstudents.collegeboard.org/getting-credit-placement/search-policies
