How to Seek Additional Help
Cornerstone staff are happy to discuss the dual enrollment process with parents. However, one of the goals of our dual enrollment program is to help students prepare for the realities of post-secondary education. Because of this, we encourage students to contact their high school counselor or CU staff, as needed.
If students have questions regarding the dual enrollment process, they should begin by looking at the list of frequently asked questions. If the student still has additional questions, they may follow up in person, via email or phone with CU staff.
