Dual Enrollment
 

Dual Enrollment

 
Dual enrollment offers some exciting possibilities for high school students. Eligible students can take college courses and receive college credit while still in high school.
 
Eligibility
A candidate for admission to this program is considered on the basis of academic preparation including high school academic record, character, and ACT, SAT or other nationally normed standardized test scores in absence of an ACT or SAT score.
 
The Aquinas College Admissions Office evaluates each application individually and reserves the right to accept or deny students into the dual enrollment program on a case by case basis.
 
Checklist
Please complete the free on-line application for admission to the Dual Enrollment program.
 
Remember to include:
  • Official high school transcripts
  • ACT/SAT scores (if available)
  • Your high school’s dual enrollment eligibility and payment form (available from your guidance counselor).
  • Dual Enrollment Authorization Form (pdf)
Once we have all the information above we will be able to assist you with class registration. Contact the dual enrollment coordinator to learn about any placement tests you may need to take.
 
You may need to register for class(es) in the Advising Office in Hruby Hall, or the dual enrollment coordinator will register your class(es) for you and send your class schedule to you in the mail.
 
Tuition (Special Rates Apply)
The tuition per credit hour for dually enrolled students is half of the current per credit hour tuition rate. Your school district will be billed directly for payment at this discounted rate upon submission of the completed high school dual enrollment eligibility and payment form.
 
Note: The Aquinas College reduced tuition rate for students from the Grand Rapids Catholic Secondary Schools is 1/3 of the current per credit hour tuition rate.  The balance after discount will be billed directly to the student’s family.
