Many high schools are offering dual-enrollment programs, where they team up with colleges and universities to teach college-level classes to high-school students. Although credits don't always transfer, students earning high-school and college credit at the same time often save substantially on college tuition and can better define their academic interests. One high-school student graduated with more than 20 college credits and saved more than $7,200 in tuition at Iowa State University before he entered his first year there.
