Dual Enrollment

DE Applications for Fall 2015 admission will be accepted beginning February 2, 2015. Check the website for the NEW application, which will be available at the end of January.

  • Public school students must check with your High School Guidance Counselor and the College Transitions Counselor/Coach assigned to your school for more information regarding the admission process.
  • Home and Private school students must contact the DE office via telephone, email, or walk-in (see contact info at DE website) for additional details regarding the admission process.

Dual enrollment is an acceleration mechanism that allows students to pursue an advanced curriculum relevant to their individual postsecondary interests.

According to the U.S. Department of Education, college credit earned prior to high school graduation reduces the average time-to-degree and increases the likelihood of graduation for the students who participate in these programs. There is great potential to further engage and motivate students to take academically rigorous courses that capture their interests. There is also evidence that dual enrollment increases academic performance and educational attainment.

Key points include the following:

  1. Academic readiness, social maturity and motivation
  2. Not yet graduated from high school
  3. Meet GPA (3.0 unweighted) and college-ready test score eligibility requirements
  4. School guidance counselor recommendation and parent(s)/legal guardian(s) approval
  5. Successfully complete courses, with a "C" or better
  6. Beginning of your permanent college transcript
  7. Receiving both high school and college credit for the course(s)

Effective Immediately (as of March 30, 2012)
