Lincoln University Dual Enrollment
What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual enrollment is a program that allows high school students to enroll in college courses for credit prior to high school graduation. Dual enrollment classes are offered either on a college campus or online. The difference between dual enrollment and dual credit is that the coursework in dual enrollment classes does not meet any high school graduation requirements; only college credit is earned. However, while high schools are often limited as to what classes they can offer for dual credit, dual enrollment courses are only limited by what the college offers. Further, while dual credit courses are only offered in high schools to enrolled high school students, dual enrollment classes will be open to qualified high school students, as well as home-schooled students.
What Are the Benefits of Dual Enrollment?
- Dual enrollment allows students to earn college credit while in high school
- The college credit earned can transfer to most colleges and universities, saving time and money
- Dual enrollment classes are college classes taught by college faculty, exposing students to college-level courses and easing the transition from high school to college
- Students have the ability to enroll in any course, as long as the prerequisites are met
What does Dual Enrollment Cost?
Tuition for dual enrollment classes is $150 per credit hour. Additional on-campus fees may apply, such as laboratory fees.
Once students are admitted as Lincoln University students, students are required to register for courses through the Division of Educational Innovation and Extended Studies.
