DUAL ENROLLMENT OPPORTUNITIES AT DHS
DeRidder High School offers dual enrollment to juniors and seniors. High school credit is awarded based on the Beauregard Parish Dual Enrollment Matrix. College credit is awarded through McNeese or SOWELA.
We offer a variety of courses for our students here at DHS. Please see the dual enrollment matrix for all available options. In English, we have an on-site teacher, Mrs. Franks. All other courses are on-line. We do schedule those on-line courses with a certified teacher who can support our students during the semester.
McNeese made adjustments to their requirements for fall 2020. Students who were accepted as McNeese dual enrollment students for fall 2020, will automatically roll over into spring 2021 classes without any new requirements to meet. For students who will be applying for the first time as dual enrollment students for spring 2021, they must meet the elegibility requirements listed below.
SPRING 2021 SEMESTER: Please complete the course request form and return to Mrs. Wingate by December 4, 2020. If you will be taking dual enrollment for the first time in the spring, you must complete a dual enrollment application on the McNeese website. Links for these two items are listed below.

SOWELA STEPS PROGRAM
During your child’s senior year, he or she can attend STEPS high school at SOWELA. Informational links have been posted below. If you plan to puruse this option, please let your counselor know during the annual class meetings held every spring.
DUAL ENROLLMENT COLLEGE CREDIT TRANSFERS
Every university is different in regards to which credits will or will not transfer. It is important that you check with your college or univeristy of choice to see what they will or will not accept. The Louisiana Board of Regents does offer an articulation matrix to help guide you. I have posted a link to that matrix here.
