El Paso Community College’s Dual Credit and Early College Program has been recognized as a finalist in the Examples of Excellence in the associate level.

“Excelencia in Education!” is an organization that works to accelerate Latino student success, enhance our workforce, leadership, and economy.

EPCC’s Dual Credit and Early College High School program was one of only 21 finalists selected from more than 139 nominated programs from 27 states, DC and Puerto Rico. 

“EPCC’s Dual Credit and Early College High School programs are having tremendous results in getting youth in our region on a path to higher education,” Dr. William Serrata, EPCC President said.  “The data shows that students who take just one college course in high school are more likely to pursue a college degree and be successful.”

The four 2018 Examples of Excelencia will be announced October 11th at the Celebración de Excelencia in Washington, DC.
