High School Dual Enrollment Information


Open Dual Enrollment: Deadlines are based on the last day to register. Students should keep in mind that an application would need to be processed and qualifying scores (or placement test scores) received prior to the last day of registration. After the last day of registration, we will be unable to register within that semester and students will want to consider the next semester for registration. It is not advised that students wait until the last minute to register as seats are limited and appointments may be needed to meet with a Dual Enrollment representative for registration.

College in the High School: Your high school will communicate the deadline as well as a Dual Enrollment representative.

Structured Pathway/Special Programs: Your high school will communicate the deadline as well as a Dual Enrollment representative.

Using SAT/ACT scores for placement testing

Students may be able to waive the placement test (or a portion) with the below scores. Please note, that these are minimum qualifying scores. If a student receives the minimum qualifying mathematic score other prerequisites may be involved for a specific course(s). If this is true, the student may complete the placement test to receive higher scores in the deficient area. Your Dual Enrollment representative will be able to discuss more.

SAT Reading=500; ACT Reading =18
SAT Math = 530; ACT Math = 20
