Online Courses for High School Students
Explore our dual credit high school courses to save time and money on your future!
Lincoln University has provided concurrent enrollment opportunities for thousands of high school students in the central Missouri area for over ten years. Early college programs are becoming increasingly popular among high school students. Concurrent enrollment benefits students by preparing them for college through providing an opportunity to experience rigorous college-level coursework, saving time by providing a head start on college credit, and making college more affordable.
We understand the challenges many high schools face when trying to establish dual credit programs at their school, as well as the challenges students face when trying to earn college credit while participating in extra-curricular activities. To attempt to address these challenges, Lincoln University offers online college courses that are open to both high school students and home-schooled students.

Transferability of Credit
All online general education courses will likely transfer to any public post-secondary institution in the state of Missouri. Credit transfer to private institutions is not guaranteed; students are strongly encouraged to contact their prospective institutions to determine their dual credit transfer policy.
Registration for dual enrollment online courses will be through the Division of Educational Innovation and Extended Studies. All students will also need an official transcript to verify their grade point average, and documentation of ACT scores, if applicable.

Online course schedules will follow the same academic calendar as the University.
