Dual Enrollment Opportunities in the High Schools

Aquinas College offers courses for dual enrollment in five area high schools.

Grand Rapids Catholic Central
Hacket Catholic Prep High School
Muskegon Catholic Central
Portland St. Patrick’s High School
West Catholic High School

In the Dual Enrollment Program at the local high schools, courses are taught by Aquinas College professors on the campus of the high school. There is a designated classroom on each campus where students can feel comfortable yet ready to begin their college career.


A candidate for admission to the Dual Enrollment program at their school 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 works with the high school guidance counselors on admission.  Aquinas College reserves the right to accept or deny students into the dual enrollment program on a case by case basis.

Tuition (Special Rates Apply)

The tuition per credit hour for dually enrolled students is $268 per credit hour for up to 11 credits. Your school district or the State of Michigan will be billed directly for payment at this discounted rate upon submission of the completed high school dual enrollment eligibility and payment form. Any remaining balance is funded individually or through prior agreements with the high schools. Please contact Erin Peraino, Coordinator of Academic Affairs and Outreach Programs with questions at 616-632-2062 or eep003@aquinas.edu.
