LAFAYETTE — High school students across Acadiana will have greater access to dual enrollment course options following the merger of South Louisiana Community College with regional technical college campuses on July 1, a news release said.
“This is one of the many benefits of the recent merger between SLCC and Acadiana Technical Co llege. We are able to offer more general education courses across Acadiana through our dual enrollment program. This makes working toward a degree more convenient,” said Paul Bourgeois, the college’s dual enrollment director.
Courses will be offered at the following campuses: Lafayette, Teche Area in New Iberia, Gulf Area in Abbeville, Evangeline in St. Martinville, T.H. Harris in Opelousas, Acadian in Crowley and C.B. Coreil in Ville Platte.
All courses are for three-credit hours. The course topics include computer science, business, geography, math, arts, music, history, writing, criminal justice, child care and emergency care, among other offerings.
Students must have ACT test scores, SAT equivalent or Compass test scores for placement into college-level, degree-credit courses in both English and math.
Students interested in taking the dual enrollment courses should contact their high school guidance counselor or Bourgeois at (337) 893-4984 ext. 4145 or email Paul.Bourgeois@southlouisiana.edu.
