Dual Enrollment Advising
Starting Fall 2019, Dual Enrollment is piloting a Dual Enrollment Advising platform to gauge interest, load, and performance for students. Eligible students during the Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 semesters are those attending Millard West High School and Ralston High School.
If either of these schools are not your host-high school (where you spend most of your school day), you are still welcome to email our office for assistance in navigating the UNO Courses offered at your school.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we venture in to this exciting new service for our students.
- Inform students what UNO Courses are offered at their high school for dual credit
- Ensure that high school students enrolled in UNO Courses know how that credit may be utilized
- Communicate to high school students the UNO pathways that may exist based on completed or anticipated UNO Courses during high school
- Assist in future enrollment of UNO Courses to earn college credit and graduate from college on-time or earlier than originally anticipated
Value of Advising
Depending on the outlook of any one particular dual enrollment student, their willingness to understand how earned college credits impact them may vary. Whether a student decides to earn three (3) credits through UNO's Dual Enrollment Program or enroll in as many courses as they have access to can make a large difference. One outcome we want to avoid if possible is to have students realize after-the-fact that the dual credit courses they enrolled in did not make a particular impact on their post-secondary education journey.
To clear as much uncertainty and concern throughout their dual enrollment experience, we hope that through a blending of guidance and advising that students in the UNO Dual Enrollment Program can make well-informed decisions. This blending may include support from the student's high school counselor, their curriculum specialist, course instructor, UNO Academic Department Faculty/Staff, and/or UNO Dual Enrollment Staff.
