What is dual enrollment?

Students grades ninth through twelfth are able to earn college credit by attending classes at Washtenaw Community College while still attending high school. All credits earned through dual enrollment will be part of the student’s official WCC transcript. Most dual enrollees use the opportunity to complete some of their general education classes. These students like the small class sizes, personal attention, and affordable tuition that WCC offer. WCC credit also easily transfer to most four-year institutions—which is great for students that plan to attend a four-year university or college.

Who is eligible for dual enrollment?

Any current high school student who meets all of WCC’s admission requirements (Dual Enrollment Packet). Dual enrolled students are eligible to register for any course(s) as long as the course prerequisite is met. High school counselors can best assist in determining courses for enrollment.

Who pays for dual enrollment?

  • Most public schools pay for their student to dual enroll. However, any tuition, fees and textbooks not covered by the high school will be the responsibility of the student/family.
  • For non-public school students, the State of Michigan determines what dollar amount, if any, it will pay per course. Any tuition, fees and textbooks not covered by the State of Michigan is the responsibility of the student/family.
  • Payment or payment authorization must be turned in to the WCC Cashier’s Office by the appropriate payment deadline. Payment or payment authorization needs to be submitted each semester a student is dually enrolled.
