Dual Enrollment

The final deadline for Spring 2015 admissions was November 1, 2014. All of the students that completed the process and will be accepted into the Dual Enrollment program for Spring 2015 can expect to receive an official acceptance letter, via U.S. mail, no later than December 5, 2014. AFTER you have received an official acceptance letter in the mail, immediately proceed with instructions as provided to avoid delays with registering for your Spring 2015 courses.

  1. Setup your Atlas account.

  2. Complete the LASSI and Career Review assessments; visit the assessment website for more information about how to complete these assessments online via Blackboard.

  3. Wait 48 hours before registering for a New Student Orientation session via your Atlas account. NSO can be completed online OR on campus.

  4. Wait at least 48 hours after completing a New Student Orientation session for your results to be posted and then the hold will be removed.

  5. Register for classes; check your Atlas account for the window in which you will be permitted to register for the upcoming term.

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)
