Get a jumpstart at Grove City College! The Dual Enrollment Program provides high-achieving high school students an opportunity to take college classes for credit at a reduced cost. These courses – offered to qualified juniors or seniors in public, private, or home education – may count for high school credit, Grove City College credit, and potentially college credit at other institutions.
By taking college courses in high school, you can earn college credit at a reduced cost while exploring various fields of study in the context of a deep-rooted academic community. Dual-enrolled students may take up to two courses (totaling no more than seven credits) per semester. In addition, dual-enrolled students are able to register for January and May Intersession courses. While most dual-enrolled classes are offered on campus, several courses are available online as well.
Students may register for fall, spring, and summer online courses. These courses are open to high school juniors and seniors in every state except California. Those interested may apply for online courses as they would apply for an on-campus class (see “How do I apply?” below for instructions). Registration is now open for the fall 2019 online session. Spots are limited and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis. If you have any questions regarding our online course offerings, please contact Abby Kehr, Dual Enrollment Coordinator.
The tuition cost per credit for the 2019-20 academic year for Dual Enrollment Program classes is $165 per credit hour, 70% less than our standard cost per credit hour! Thus, students who take several dual-enrollment classes can significantly reduce the cost of a Grove City College degree.
Most courses are worth three credits except for courses with associated laboratories, which are generally worth four credits. Additionally, published course-related fees (e.g., laboratory supplies) are the responsibility of the student, and financial aid is not available for dual-enrolled students.
Please note that the College reserves the right to designate which courses are available to dual-enrolled students. Contact Abby Kehr, Dual Enrollment Coordinator with any course-related questions.
