Guest Student Application


High school students may take college courses either with the support of their school districts (dual enrollment) or independently. School district support is always needed if the students wish to earn credit toward their high school graduation requirements. Local school districts determine eligibility for dual enrollment based on standards established by their states’ Department of Education. The College sets admission requirements for secondary students who are taking college classes without school district support, for college credit only.

High school students who wish to take classes independently for college credit only must have a “B” average (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better, have parental consent and the recommendation of their high school counselor to be admitted as Advanced Secondary Students. They may enroll in up to three courses totaling no more than 8 credits per semester and may choose any courses for which they meet the prerequisites.

All Advanced Secondary Students must submit an Advanced Secondary Application showing parental consent and dual-enrollment eligibility or high school guidance counselor’s recommendation to the Admissions Office for each semester.
