What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual enrollment is students taking college courses at a local college during their senior year of high school. In order to qualify, students must be enrolled in 4 credits beyond the junior year at their home school and meet all specified graduation requirements. It is recommended that students complete or be enrolled in English 12 and Algebra II prior to requesting enrollment in a post-secondary program.
Students must seek permission for dual enrollment prior to the beginning of the semester for which the request is being made. Students must make an appointment with their school counselor and have a parent conference to review the educational plan and obtain apropriate paperwork.
Prior to enrolling at the post-secondary institution, the student and parent must complete the Dual Enrollment Application, received at the conference with the School Counselor. The School Counselor must sign in the verification section that the student has completed the essential requirements. At this point, the student may take the partially completed form to post-secondary personnel for dual enrollment. The form must be completed with all signatures obtained. Final approval will be granted by the principal.
