Is it better or easier to do dual-credit than dual-enrollment, and what are the benefits of these programs??

I'm asking as a 10th grade bond student from Chicago, Illinois interested in these programs. My counselor suggested I take classes at community colleges next summer instead of next school year, however I'm not sure which to do or if I should choose both. Thanks!

If I take dual credit classes in high school, am I getting my basics done ahead of time?

I have always been told that if I take dual credit classes I’ll have enough hours to be a junior by my second semester. I was wondering if this was true or not. #ctc #career-and-technical-school #gen-eds #college #dual-credit #dual-enrollment #course-selection #academic-advising

Which is better to be accepted into colleges outside of my state and for scholarships, Advanced Placement classes or Dual Credit courses? Are they valued the same by admissions and scholarship committees?

Through out my high school career I have chosen dual credit course or advance placement classes. The teachers were the same for both. The college credit was automatic without the burden of an assessment to determine if I should receive college credit. Also they both had the same point value so I my GPA was getting the same point value boost. However, as I have started to complete more applications outside the state, I don't see where they are asking about dual credit or honors classes. All the questions I have come across have ask about AP classes. So which is better to take? #advance-placement #dual-credit
