Dual Enrollment Application Process

Dual enrollment is designed for academically talented students who want to accelerate their college careers. The dual enrollment program at Michigan Tech provides eligible high school students the opportunity to simultaneously enroll in college courses. The credits earned can be used toward both a high school diploma and a college degree or certificate.

Michigan Dual Enrollment Process

If you're a high school student in Michigan, you'll need to follow these steps to participate in the Michigan Dual Enrollment program at Michigan Tech:

  1. Meet with your guidance counselor to see if you have exhausted the curriculum at your high school.
  2. Receive approval from your counselor to participate in the dual enrollment option.

Math Placement

If you are planning to take a math course through dual enrollment, you are required to take the ALEKS math placement assessment prior to registering for the course. You’ll need to apply for dual enrollment following the procedure listed above. Once your application is complete, we will email you details about taking the assessment.

There is a $25 one-time fee for the assessment that is paid directly to ALEKS. Students must receive a qualifying score in order to enroll in a math course through dual enrollment. Learn more about the ALEKS math placement assessment.

College Preparation

Many dual enrolled students go on to attend Michigan Tech as full-time, degree-seeking students.  If you’re heading down this path, you'll need to complete our free online application for admission as an undergraduate degree seeking student. You will need to have your high school submit an official transcript showing your grades through your junior year as well as your ACT and/or SAT scores. 

If you’re planning to attend a different college or university after high school, contact the Registrar’s Office to have your transcripts forwarded to that school.  To find out if a course you took at Michigan Tech will transfer to a different university, contact the university you are interested in attending to determine transfer eligibility.

It’s important to realize that the grades you earn in any courses you complete at Michigan Tech will be a permanent part of your college academic record and will be calculated in your Michigan Tech cumulative GPA.
