If you’re a student who has demonstrated strong academic performance in high school, dual enrollment may be the perfect opportunity for you. Dual enrollment is your opportunity to get a head start on your college career by taking classes at Michigan Tech before you graduate from high school. You’ll also get to see what it's like to be a college student at a top public university.
Not from the local area? Michigan Tech offers several online courses that you can take to earn dual enrollment credit from home.
To be eligible for dual enrollment you must be a high school student who:
- has exhausted your curriculum in a specific discipline, and has approval from your high school to participate in the Michigan Dual Enrollment Program at Michigan Tech, or
- would like to take classes for self enrichment. This option applies if you are not eligible to participate in the Michigan Dual Enrollment Program, and
- has a cumulative high school GPA of 3.00 or higher.
Dual enrollment is available to students beginning in ninth grade. You are able to take a maximum of ten courses through the dual enrollment program. Your high school may have specific criteria for eligibility for the program. We encourage you to talk with your guidance counselor to determine if dual enrollment is right for you.
Michigan Tech accepts credit from students who have dual enrolled at another institution. Credit is granted for courses where the student earned a grade of 'C' or better and is treated as traditional transfer credit. Students must have an official transcript sent directly from the institution in order to have credit evaluated. Check out our Transfer Guides for more details.
