Dual Enrollment Program

Dual Enrollment Program (DEP) – Dual Enrollment provides an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to get a head start on college. Students take college classes in lieu of high school classes and earn both high school and college credit simultaneously. This program is designed for academically accelerated students and can also be referred to as Dual Enrollment.

The Dual Enrollment Application for Fall 2018 – Summer 2019 is closed.

The application for the Dual Enrollment Program is closed. All required documents, transcripts (high school and/or college) or home educated portfolio, and test scores must be submitted by the following deadlines for admissions consideration. No exceptions to our admissions standards or deadline dates will be considered. Please allow ample time for receipt and processing of all documents and test scores. Processing time of applicants varies based on the number of applicants and the time of year.

Priority Deadline: January 19, 2018

Completing an application for admission by the priority deadline guarantees priority registration for college classes. Priority registration is a great benefit to students that wish to tailor their class schedules with high school or extracurricular activities.

Please note the last test we will accept for our March deadline is the February ACT.
