Dual Enrollment

What are the benefits?

  • Students have an opportunity to get a jump start on earning college credit courses while simultaneously earning high school credit.
  • College credit is awarded by the University of Missouri. High school credit is awarded by the student's participating high school.
  • College credit courses developed by University of Missouri faculty in areas such as literature, languages, math, science and social sciences ensure a quality learning experience.

  • have a B+ average, as certified by their high schools, at the time of enrollment;
  • have completed 12 or more units of high school level credits;
  • are in the upper 25% of their class;
  • have achieved an ACT score of 24 or better (or equivalent SAT score);
