Students in DE must be VERY careful

As a former DE student, parents should be advised to be heavily involved in the course choices students make and aware of the DE rules. In my case, while DE provided me with a number of state-paid courses, only 25% of the courses went towards the path of a degree. My parents were told that I could not take any college course that would overlap with a course offered in high school. Upon moving on to a state four-year university, I was forced by the school to drop out as I had enough credits to be a junior but not enough courses to fit into any upper division major degree program. I ended up working full time and finishing my degree 12 years later.
