Tis' the Season for...Dual Enrollment

Eager to earn high school and college credits simultaneously this fall? Now is the time to research dual enrollment requirements and turn in applications. Many colleges are gearing up for fall registration.

What you need to do:
1. Research requirements for the colleges and community colleges in your area. Most of this information is online.
2. Find out what college entrance exams are required. Some schools look at SATs and ACTs while others accept CPT results.
3. Find out where and when the CPT is offered.
4. Know what CPT scores are needed to take courses of interest. Students must obtain minimum scores for certain classes, including math and English courses.
5. Call the dual enrollment office and ask about high school transcripts, testing deadlines, CPT refresher courses or online practice materials, course selection, registration, and online accounts (most colleges now require students to have an online account).
6. Talk to students (or their parents) who have attended the college. Ask for professor and course recommendations.
