          Frequently Asked Questions about High School Dual Enrollment

          What is High School Dual Enrollment?

          A program that allows high school students to take courses at the college level, which gives them the possibility of dual credit.

          What are the advantages?
          • Introduction to college work load
          • Credits go toward college which will create a lighter work load per semester, flexibility for a minor or allow you to graduate a semester or year early
          • Explore career fields before starting college
          How much do High School Dual Enrollment courses cost?

          $275 per credit = $825 per three-credit course

          This is a significant saving over traditional tuition costs.

          Who can participate in High School Dual Enrollment?

          High school juniors and seniors with a 3.0 or higher GPA are accepted into the program.

          Can I study online or on campus?

          Both!

          When are courses offered?

          On-Campus

          • Two 16-week semesters: August to December and January to May

          Online

          • Five 8-week sessions: starting in January, March, May, August and October
          How many courses can I take?

          You may take one 8-week session or two per 16-week semester.

          Can I receive both college and high school credit?

          College credit should not be an issue as long as the course is required for your major. High school credit is based on your high school’s policy.

          How will dual enrollment affect my GPA?

          High school GPA is based on the high school’s discrepancy. College as a high schooler is similar to that of a regular college student. Your grade will impact your college GPA. If you attend CSU, that is the GPA that will continue with you. Outside CSU, typically a C or better will transfer wherever God is leading you.

          Who can help me with dual enrollment and choosing my courses?

          Initially, your admissions counselor will walk you through options. Once you are enrolled, you will be assigned an advisor to assist you through the rest of your time as a dual enrolled student.

          “The biggest benefit of the online classes is that I could complete the coursework from anywhere. I could even complete the forums through the Schoology app on my phone, which allowed me to take my education anywhere my family was going. The classes were a great introduction to college work, especially since I could message the professors any time to ask questions.”
