Dual Enrollment

Description 

Dual Enrollment is an opportunity for high schools students in grades 9-12 to enroll in college courses simultaneously. This is an advantage for students who have exhausted the advanced course options in their high school; they can continue their advanced study by taking an appropriate level college class. Also, some high schools may not offer certain elective subjects, but a student with interest and motivation can dual enroll in a college course to explore different subjects. Most intro level courses at MSU are open to dual enrollment students! Higher level classes usually require meeting pre-requisites, either by taking intro level classes first, or by achieving the appropriate score on an AP test. To start exploring classes, view our list of sample intro level courses or go to www.schedule.msu.edu to browse classes by department.

Dual enrollment students can receive tuition assistance from their school. By dual enrollment law, your school uses a formula to calculate the tuition assistance that they provide to you.
