Dual Enrollment Program

Want to experience Anna Maria College courses while still in high school? Are you seeking a challenging and rewarding opportunity to earn college credit?

You can earn FREE college credit through Dual Enrollment courses at Anna Maria College! Our Dual Enrollment program allows you to earn credit toward a high school/homeschool diploma and college degree simultaneously, saving you time and money toward your college degree. To be eligible, students should have a grade point average of 3.00 GPA on a 4.00 weighted or unweighted scale (80 on a 100 point scale).

Dual Enrollment offers student courses that will transfer to most two-year and four-year public and private institutions, while simultaneously completing secondary education graduation requirements. As you consider dual enrollment, please make sure to work with your high school counselor/administrator to make them aware of our classes so that they can assist you with appropriate academic advising and course scheduling during your Junior and Senior years.

Selected students are enrolled in a part-time course load depending on their program and course needs. Dual Enrollment students are considered non-degree seeking Anna Maria College students and as such will be awarded the same academic support privileges as other Anna Maria College students. All Dual Enrollment students are limited to two(2) courses per semester (Fall and Spring). Classes begin on August 28th for the Fall.
