Claflin University Announces Dual Enrollment Program To Benefit High Schoolers Nationwide

Claflin University Announces Dual Enrollment Program To Benefit High Schoolers Nationwide
Posted By: Sofía Montiel on November 23, 2022

National College Resources Foundation (NCRF) has partnered with Claflin University, the nationally accredited, first Historically Black College and University (HBCU) in South Carolina, to announce a historic Dual Enrollment Program for high school Juniors and Seniors throughout the nation. Claflin University President, Dr. Dwaun J. Warmack, and NCRF Founder and President, Dr. Theresa Price, made a joint announcement via video at NCRF’s recent Black College Expo™ at The White House HBCU Week in Washington D.C.

“We want to be part of the solution… This is an opportunity for high school students to start college junior and senior year.”

- Dr. Dwaun J. Warmack, President of Claflin University


He also spoke of Claflin’s and NCRF’s shared goal, “for students to be better prepared for their college endeavors by graduating from high school with an Associates Degree from one of the top ten HBCUs in the country.”

“We are making history in our partnership with Claflin University and changing lives. Students who participate in this Dual Enrollment program will have access, support and clear pathways to success.”

- Dr. Theresa Price, NCRF Founder and President


These programs help students and families save money as their timeline for college completion is condensed. The program also helps students acclimate to college life and the required workload.



Students who complete the program will be automatically accepted in the college with a scholarship once they graduate from high school.

Set to launch in Spring Semester 2023, the Dual Enrollment program is 100% online and will be available at no cost through NCRF. The transferrable coursework, in English, Math and Science, is offered through Claflin’s School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics and will fulfill General Education requirements.

Space is limited. High School students admitted to the program must be recommended by a Math or Science Instructor, Guidance Counselor or School Administrator, or by NCRF’s Educational Director. No formal letter of recommendation is required although Seniors must have a minimum of a 2.8 Academic GPA and Juniors must have a minimum of a 3.2 Academic GPA.

NCRF is the only community-based program in the country to offer this opportunity with four-year colleges. Since the initial announcement last week, NCRF now has dual-enrollment agreements in place with four additional four-year Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), Fisk University, Paul Quinn College, Texas Southern University and Virginia University-Lynchburg.

NCRF is on a mission to change the world in creating more future leaders of color.

The Claflin Dual Enrollment application is open now through December 19, 2022. To be part of the inaugural Claflin class or to find out more about this unique program or additional NCRF Dual Enrollment programs, please visit: www.ncrfoundation.org
