Dual Enrollment Programs
The Dual Enrollment program allows high school juniors and seniors to take college courses while still enrolled in a traditional high school program. Locally, Lackawanna College and Johnson College participate in the Dual Enrollment program with Riverside High School. Dual Enrollment programs may be available at other colleges. Students are welcome to apply. However, we ask that the student notify their school counselor if they apply to another college. Courses taken are usually freshman level courses which can be transferable to other colleges allowing students a significant start in their first year.Riverside offers college credit through the following institutions:Lackawanna College - Dual Enrollment credits and Level UP ProgramJohnson College - Industry Fast Track Program
The Level up program offers students a variety of paths to earning college credits, certificates, or even associate degrees during their high school experience.
- The Level Up program dramatically reduces the per-credit rate for classes to make a college education more attainable for our region’s students.
- The dual enrollment rate is $100 per credit.
- Students enrolled in this unique program have the opportunity to get acclimated to college-level rigor and experience potential career options while maintaining the “safety net” of a high school environment.
- Credits enrolled through the Level Up program can be transferred across the country, but there are additional benefits awarded to students who choose to remain at Lackawanna College.
- Students will receive guidance from the Level Up Program Director, who will provide curriculum plans, academic advising, and academic support services. Students also have access to our various support services through the Student Success Center.

Other opportunities to earn college credit are also available at the following institutions. Students must meet academic criteria for each institution. Classes typically meet online, in the evening, sometimes on Saturday mornings, and during summer sessions. Students interested in one of these opportunities should speak to their school counselor to learn more.
