Dual Enrollment Qualifications

To be eligible for Dual Enrollment, a student must be in grade 10, 11, or 12 and have a minimum cumulative 2.0 cumulative average in completed high school courses to take technical courses and minimum cumulative 2.5 average in completed high school courses to take academic courses.

 

Students interested in dual enrollment should speak with their high school counselor to begin the process.

Next Steps

Requirements

Students must meet the following requirements to participate in Dual Enrollment:

  • Current high school transcript
  • A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (unweighted) for academic courses and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (unweighted) for technical courses
  • Enrolled in 10th, 11th, or 12th grade
  • Courses must be at or above 100 level. Physical education (PED) classes are not eligible for dual enrollment.
  • Meet all prerequisite requirements as listed in the SSCC Catalog.  Students must submit appropriate ACT, SAT, or College placement scores.
  • Maintain continuous eligibility.  Students who meet the criteria for initial admission in Dual Enrollment will remain in continuous eligibility as long as a grade of “C” or better in all attempted college courses is earned.  Students who fail to meet this minimum grade requirement or who withdraw from a course will be suspended from Dual Enrollment for a minimum of one term.  The one term suspension may not be served during the summer term.  The student may not re-enroll until the suspension has been served.  For re-entry, the student must reapply to the program and meet the minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (unweighted) for academic courses and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (unweighted) for technical courses.

Steps for First Time Dual Enrollment Student

      • In the absence of a government-issued photo ID, a certified copy of the student’s birth certificate along with a printout of the student information profile sheet from iNow, signed and dated by the high school counselor, can be submitted. The profile sheet must show the student’s home address and include the student’s photo.
  • Review the Schedule of Classes.  Students should only take courses that meet their high school requirements, transfer to the college you are planning to attend, or apply to the degree in which you plan to major.  Speak with your high school counselor to determine course approval for classes at either SSCC campus or on your high school campus.
  • Submit the Dual Enrollment Approval Form.  
      • As part of the Dual Enrollment Approval Form, a student must upload a current high school transcript.
      • If selecting a math or English course, a student must upload qualifying ACT scores (18 math subscore – MTH 100, 20 math subscore – MTH 112, 18 English subscore – ENG 101).
      • Once the form is submitted, the form is circulated via email for review and electronic signature in the following order:

        2. Parent review (parent and student section) and sign electronically.
        3. Counselor review (parent and student section) and sign electronically.
        4. The form is submitted to dualenrollment@sheltonstate.edu, and the student, parent, and counselor receive a copy of the completed form.
