Welcome to the Dual Enrollment Biology website. Our program supports and offers freshman level Biology I (1450) and Biology II (1750) for high school students enrolled in Advanced Placement Biology. Participating high schools have approved college level adjunct instructors that teach high school AP Biology at the college level. This gives students in high school the opportunity to earn up to 10 college credit hours through the Department of Biology at UNO. Listed below are further benefits for students participating in the Dual Enrollment program.
