High school students may earn college credit while they are still attending high school and enrolled in high school courses. The same regulations apply to Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit Program students as to regular students.
Where can dual enrollment/dual credit courses be taught?
- By Copiah-Lincoln Community College at the Wesson Campus, Natchez Campus, or Simpson County Center
- At an approved dual enrollment/credit high school
- Through an online Co-Lin course
To be admitted to the Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit Program, students must submit the following:
- A completed Copiah-Lincoln Community College application for admission
- A high school transcript that documents junior and senior status with a minimum of 14 core high school units:
A 3.0 on 4.0 scale (Academic)
A 2.0 on 4.0 scale (Career-Technical)
For special admissions requirements for home school students, see the special admissions section of the catalog.
Students who have an American College Test (ACT) score of 30 or higher may be enrolled without completing 14 units provided all other criteria are met.
- A minimum subscore on the ACT:
A minimum ACT subscore of 17 in English to enroll in English Composition I
A minimum ACT subscore of 19 in math to enroll in College Algebra
- A recommendation form, provided by the college, from the high school principal and/or guidance counselor stating ACT subscore, number or core high school units completed, and GPA. A home-schooled student must have the form completed by a parent or teacher.
NOTE: Dual enrollment/dual credit programs in the Career-Technical area may have special entrance requirements.
