What is Dual Enrollment?

Dual enrollment is a program that allows high school students to simultaneously earn college credit that will also count as high school credit.  Dual enrollment courses are college courses offered either online or in a classroom setting.  Students should understand, depending on your current situation, that the amount of work necessary to succeed in dual enrollment courses is usually much greater than in high school courses.    

 Eligibility Requirements 

  • Must be a junior or senior and at least 16 years old
  • Must have a 3.0 minimum grade point average
  • Some courses have additional requirements (prerequisites)
  • Tennessee residents may apply for the Tennessee Dual Enrollment Grant.  This is the only applicable financial aid for dual enrolled students.
