Welcome to Maryville High School's Dual Enrollment Site
Dual Enrollment provides students the opportunity to take college courses at Maryville College, Pellissippi State Community College, the University of Tennessee, and Roane State to earn both high school and college credit. There are many benefits to enrolling in dual enrollment courses, but there are also specific requirements as well. This site explains the benefits, requirements, and procedures for enrolling in Dual Enrollment courses at Maryville High School.
Any student who has taken dual enrollment courses throughout his or her time at M.H.S. must remember to request a transcript from the dual enrollment college be sent to the college the student is attending in the fall or summer. Transcripts are private, legal documents, and Maryville High School cannot make this request for you. You can do this through your MYPellissippi account or college's website if you still have an active account. If not, you will need to contact your college about that process. You should take care of this immediately, and then follow up with your fall college's admission office to be sure they received the information.
Early College Experience Benefits
1. Provides an introduction to college-level work and expectations
2. Credit accepted by most colleges and universities (all public colleges and universities in Tennessee, including UT, and many out-of-state colleges) for general education classes, such as English, Biology, Psychology, and Mathematics courses.
3. For the dual courses taught through the Vocational/Technical Department, credit may not be transferrable. Credit often leads to certification. The student will need to check with his/her high school instructor to determine the type of credit earned for vocational/technical dual courses.
4. Exceptionally low cost. Students will receive (2) $500.00 Dual Enrollment Lottery Scholarships plus $200.00 toward a third dual class during their junior and senior years of high school to be used for tuition. Students must maintain a 2.75 G.P.A. in their college courses to be eligible for the Dual Enrollment Lottery Scholarships each term.)
5. Experiencing college without the stress of a full load of classes but with the assistance and support from Maryville High School
6. Earn up to 24 hours of college credit while still in high school
7. Dual enrollment courses are Group 2 courses which earn a .5 bonus to a passing grade.
8. Any 3 dual enrollment courses can be counted as the elective focus requirement. (Please refer to #4 above and the monetary amount which may be required for the 3rd course.)
While taking Dual Enrollment Courses is relatively inexpensive when compared to normal college credit hours, there are some expenses involved.
Qualifying students receive a total of $1200 in dual enrollment grant scholarships. Two scholarships of $500.00 each will usually pay for two 3-hour classes. Students will then have a remaining $200 balance to be used toward a third class. However, students taking Biology 1110 or Calculus 1830 must realize that these are 4-hour courses, and students will need to pay for that extra college credit hour. Likewise, almost all courses will require the purchase or rental of a textbook. These textbooks can usually be purchased through the college's bookstore, from Amazon.com, or from a previous student in the class. Because finances are a private matter, Maryville High School is unable to assist with costs and payments. It is the responsibility of the student and parents to work with the colleges concerning all payments and costs.
Below are links to tuition costs at Maryville College, Pellissippi State and The University of Tennessee. Remember, tuition for the upcoming school year is usually not set until the summer; therefore, these costs are only estimates as to the costs for the 2018-2019 school year.
Maryville College is offering the four social studies courses listed under the Courses Tab at a cost of only the dual enrollment grant, plus the cost of a textbook. This is an exceptional offer. However, if students wish to take other courses, it is suggested they contact the Maryville College Office of Admissions to discuss the cost of individual college credit hours.
Please visit the UT website for lists of individual college credit hour costs.
Parents who are employed as Tennessee public school teachers or who teach at UT are able to receive the tuition discount for Dual Enrollment courses. In order to receive the discount, the employed parent must complete the tuition discount form and receive signatures from his/her Human Resource office. It is the responsibility of the parent or student to deliver this form to the cashier of the college in order to receive this discount.

While Maryville High School is able to offer assistance to students with admission, scheduling, and grants, payment of college tuition and state educators' discounts are the responsibility of the parents and students and are private matters between the family and the college or university. Therefore, the faculty and staff of Maryville High School cannot enter into financial discussions.
Students enrolled in college courses which are not on the M.H.S. campus will follow the college's rules and schedules. On the days and times students are not on the college campus, they will report for their normal high school classes at Maryville High School, following the rules and schedules of M.H.S. Students must remember that the college's fall and spring breaks, as well as snow days, may not be the same as those followed by M.H.S. Therefore, students will need to be aware and follow the appropriate schedules.
**In order to be eligible to participate in high school sports, students must pass 6 block courses the previous year; therefore, athletes must pass their college courses to remain eligible.
