High School Dual Enrolled or ACP Applicants

Take College Classes While You're Still in High School

There are two ways that you can earn college credit while you're still in high school.

You can take college-level coursework while in high school through a college program your high school offers or through dual enrollment by direct application to a college or eligible institution. In addition, you can earn credit through college-level exams, such as A levels, IB, and AP.

Dual Enrollment

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:

  1. Application for Admission
  2. Official high school transcript showing at least a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale
  3. 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 tsuccess@iusb.edu.
