Dual enrollment allows students to receive both high school and college credit for certain career/technical education courses taken through an Alabama Community College System (ACCS) institution while enrolled in high school. Dual enrollment credit is available to students attending, public, private, parochial or church/religious schools pursuant to §16-28-1 of Code of Alabama 1975, or who are receiving instruction from a home school/private tutor pursuant to §16-28-5 of the Code of Alabama. Dual enrollment credit in career-technical education is awarded under State Board of Education Policy 801.03 and 801.04. Scholarship opportunities may be available to students that meet the eligibility requirements to participate in the dual enrollment program.
Alabama future workforce initiative (AFWI)
For tax years commencing January 1, 2015, and thereafter, the AFWI (Act 2014-147
) allows a taxpayer who files a state income tax return (and is not a dependent of another taxpayer) to claim a tax credit for donating to the Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education in support of Career-Technical Education Dual Enrollment Program. The donor may be eligible to receive up to 50 percent of the total donation back in the form of a tax credit.
AFWI is designed to help fill the unmet workforce needs of Alabama employers by providing additional scholarship opportunities for dual enrollment credit in career-technical education programs through the ACCS institutions across Alabama. This initiative has the potential to create up to $10 million annually in scholarship funds for students to participate in Career-Technical Education Dual Enrollment Program.
