Dual enrollment (DE) is a postsecondary course, taught either at the postsecondary institution, at the high school, or online, by postsecondary faculty or credentialed adjunct faculty. Students are enrolled at the postsecondary institution and earn postsecondary credit upon completion of the course.
Students who meet the qualifications will be eligible for five (5) $540.00 scholarships during their final two years of high school. This scholarship is provided through the Lottery Corporation.
Eligible students must have completed at least the sophomore year of high school with a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. In order to apply for dual enrollment, be sure to select “Dual Enrollment HS Students Only” on your application for admission. Also submit a completed application form authorized by TSAC regarding Dual Enrollment and a written recommendation from the high school principal, teacher, or counselor.
