This program is available to high school students.
A high school student that takes at least one course at his or her high school while taking one or more college courses at MSU is dual enrolled. In 2012, new legislation was passed allowing for more students to take advantage of dual enrollment while in high school. Beginning fall 2012, students in grades 9 - 12 can dual enroll without having passed the current merit exam but they must have passed some readiness tests. Students should check with their local school districts for additional information on qualifying tests. Students in grades 9 or 10 can only take two dual enrollment courses during their first year, and cannot take more than four courses during their remaining years of high school. A student in grades 11 or 12 cannot take more than six dual enrollment courses per year. Students are limited to ten dual enrollment courses during their high school years. They also must be enrolled in at least one class at their home high school.
Students who do not complete their dual enrollment course are responsible for repaying their school district any money the school district does not receive from the postsecondary institution.
All students, grades 9 - 12 as well as non-public school students, can receive tuition assistance from their school. The formula to calculate tuition assistance is available on the Michigan Department of Education web page or by contacting your school district. Non-public school can be reimbursed from the state for dual enrollment tuition they contribute to their students' tuition.
The MSU courses taken by the student must:
- Not be offered by the student's high school or there is a scheduling conflict beyond the student's control (determined by local school board).
- Not be in the areas of hobby craft, recreation, physical education, theology, divinity or religion.
- Be during the academic year -- not in the summer.
Payment for fine arts courses is at the discretion of the local school board.
