Dual Enrollment

WHAT IS DUAL ENROLLMENT?

Dual enrollment allows high school students the opportunity to take college level classes and earn dual credit (high school credit & college credit at the same time) at no expense to the student.

Students may enroll in academic degree level courses or may enroll in certificate or diploma level elective courses.

Eligible courses may be taken at the college or in an online format at Berrien Academy.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE?

According to the law, any student in grades 9-12 who is enrolled in a public school, private school, or home-study program may participate. 

HOWEVER, students must meet dual enrollment admissions requirements at a participating college and students must be enrolled in approved dual enrollment courses.  Many colleges do not allow students under the age of 16 to enroll in classes but some do.

Most students would participate stating their junior or senior year of high school and would apply during 10th or 11th grade. After expressing interest for dual enrollment, Mrs. Boda would administer the Accuplacer test to determine if the student meets the admission requirements.

2. Take the Accuplacer test to determine eligibility.

3. Complete application packet found here on the right column. From there, Mrs. Boda will help you with the rest.
