DUAL ENROLLMENT PROGRAM
Dual Enrollment is a program that allows public, private, or homeschooled high school students to enroll in courses at Great Lakes Christian College for credit prior to high school graduation. College credits earned through dual credit may be applied toward high school and college graduation and may be transferred to other colleges or universities.
Dual enrollment eases the transition to college by giving students firsthand exposure to college-level work while earning high school and college credit simultaneously. Dual enrollment also provides a wider range of course options for high school students. Through this program, dual enrollment students can accumulate up to a full year’s worth of credits prior to entering college that will help them graduate from college early or on time. Further benefit is realized from experiencing some of the advantages of Great Lakes Christian College.

Dually enrolled students are limited to 6 college credits per semester and must run concurrent with high school coursework.
