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 entry-level classes at MSU are open to dual enrollment students! Higher level classes usually require meeting pre-requisites. To start exploring classes, go to www.schedule.msu.edu to browse classes by department.
