Benefits of Dual Enrollment at CMA

Col. Heflin made applying for colleges a very simple process once I took the ACT and SAT prior to December. I was accepted to the University of Tennessee. That is where I’m spending the next three years of my life. I spoke of only three years after high school because of all the hours the college classes at CMA has provided me credits. When I graduate from CMA, I will be a registered sophomore. However, UT wasn’t the only school I was accepted into. The University of Alabama, The University of Alabama at Birmingham, The Citadel and Sanford all accepted me as well. I took AP courses when I lived in TN and the process of receiving college credits is much more difficult. For dual-enrollment courses, each semester you take a final exam given by the college professor who has been teaching the course. For AP classes, to receive college credits, you have to pass an extremely difficult AP exam at the end of the year. In all, dual – credit classes truly benefited my academic future.
My experience at CMA with applying to college and my college level classes has been priceless- the prep sessions for the SAT are remarkable; the staff and teachers were here to walk us through the process step by step. The classes are amazing. I will have received 18 credit hours in just my senior year. There are all classes that I won’t have to take my freshman year at East Carolina University…Go Pirates!!!!
