Dual Enrollment allows 9-12th grade students the opportunity to enroll in a college course while still in high school. Dual Enrollment is most often used when a student runs out of high school class options (i.e. math), to take courses in a particular area of talent (i.e. art), or to get a head start on college credits at a greatly reduced cost. It is available to students who meet state requirements for dual enrollment eligibility, including meeting specific cut score criteria on the PLAN, PSAT, ACT or MME. For career and technical dual enrollment, students must also meet specific cut score criteria on the Work Keys Career Readiness Assessment.
In order to receive tuition and fee support at eligible post-secondary institutions located within Michigan, the following course eligibility guidelines must be met:
