High School Dual Enrollment

Monroe County Community College wants to provide an opportunity for motivated students to enrich their high school education by taking MCCC classes while still in high school through the Postsecondary Option Act.

Steps for Dual Enrollment High School Students

  1. Discuss your plans with your parents.
     
  2. Meet with your high school counselor and:                 
    • Discuss the Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act.
    • Complete a Monroe County Community College application.
    • Complete the Dual Enrollment Form - click here for the dual enrollment form.
    • Have your official high school transcript sent to MCCC with the application and dual enrollment form.
     
  3. Take the MCCC placement test or submit ACT scores of 18 or higher in English, reading and 20 or higher in math.
    • Admission to the College is based upon high school performance (minimum GPA 2.5) and ACT and placement    test scores.
    • Course selection is limited by the high school, MCCC, and/or availability of course(s) desired.

Postsecondary Option Act (www.michigan.gov)

Your high school can provide the following information about the Postsecondary Option Act:

  • Who is eligible?
  • What courses to take and what colleges you can attend to take classes?
  • Who pays for tuition, fees, books and transportation?
  • The need to enroll in those courses which best fit the students’ goals.
  • The consequences of failing or not completing a college course.
  • Effect on student’s ability to graduate from high school.
  • Responsibilities of eligible students and their parent/guardian.

Please be aware of the following information about dual enrollment:

  • All students still in high school need to have completed a dual enrollment form to attend MCCC even if the high school is not funding tuition.
  • All dual enrolled students are subject to all college policies while attending MCCC. Students are given all rights and responsibilities of a MCCC student. Available in catalog, schedule of classes and MCCC’s website.
  • High schools may not meet the entire financial obligation incurred by dual enrolled students.  It is the responsibility of the student and/or parent/guardian to meet the balance of financial obligation.  Please contact your high school to determine what balances you and your parent/guardian may incur.
  • All dual enrollment students are strongly encouraged to attend “New Student Orientation” at MCCC.
