Dual enrollment is an opportunity for those students with the academic ability and social maturity to begin taking college level or preparatory courses at a local State College or University. The dual enrollment allows a qualified student the ability to earn both a credit toward high school graduation or in preparation for a college degree program. Basically, those credits earned through dual enrollment may apply to both high school and college.
The qualifications for dual enrollment may vary between colleges but are typically:
1. Student must be in the 10th grade or higher
2. Student must have a B average or better
3. An ACT, SAT or Campus test result is required
4. A High School Transcript is required (see LINKS Below).
5. Student must have approval and submit appropriate forms
Check the website of the college for additional information and requirements on their Dual Enrollment Program.
Our procedure for handling Dual Enrollment is as follows:
1. Complete a high school transcript showing all high school courses, credits, and grades earned to date. Use the form provided through the link below. While you may submit an unofficial copy to the college the copy must be reviewed by the office before approval can be given.
2. If required by the college, submit a copy of the ACT or SAT test result to the college.
3. Download the application for dual enrollment from the college website. Email my office to initiate support. DO NOT SCAN AND ME EMAIL ME FORMS WITH SENSITIVE IDENTITY DATA SUCH AS SSN AND DATE OF BIRTH. I have the Approval Form and will email you a copy of this signed form with your child’s name on it, you will fill in the remaining information on the form and submit with your registration.
The application process and the dual enrollment paperwork may vary from college to college. Review the college website for information on forms and regarding their application process.
Please note that dual enrollment is intended to be a privilege and an opportunity to those students with the academic ability and social maturity to handle the challenging environment of a college class either on campus in person or online. The approval form that is signed affirms that your child has these attributes.
Our administrative approach with dual enrollment is to be supportive of and endorse the choices of the parents as long as the college dual enrollment admissions process will approve the enrollment and course selection.
