There are two ways that you can earn college credit while you're still in high school.
Take College Classes While You're Still in High School
Rising seniors are eligible for dual enrollment; sophomores and juniors will be considered on a case-by-case basis. Talk to your high school guidance counselor to find out how university courses fit into your high school schedule and college planning.
What you'll need to apply:
- Application for Admission
- Official high school transcript showing at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale
- High school counselor recommendation
After you have been offered admission, please schedule an advising appointment with a Titan Success Coach by calling 574-520-5050 or emailing email@example.com.Apply Online
