I recently wrote a post on the advantages of dual enrollment classes for high school students.
For some students, a dual enrollment class at a college might be a better experience than an AP class at their high school. However, APs do offer one significant advantage. Specifically, their standardized end-of-year exams make it easy for other schools to determine how well a student has mastered the subject matter.
A student with a high score on an AP exam is very likely to get credit for it when he or she enrolls as college freshmen. On the other hand, a student who has completed a dual enrollment class might have trouble getting credit for it if his or her new college is unfamiliar with the institution where it was offered.
