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

Dual Enrollment students are considered 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 2 classes per term (Fall and Spring). Classes begin on August 29 for the fall term and January 17 for the spring term.
