Dual enrollment means you receive the approval of your school counselor or administrator to take a college class that is taught by a professor on the college campus and receive high school credit at the same time.
Concurrent enrollment courses are college classes that are taught by high school instructors. This means that you can take a college class and earn college credit without leaving your high school.
