Dual Enrollment

PIC HEADER

 Why should you dual enroll at Alma College?

  • Save money on college costs! High school districts typically pay the tuition and fees for dual enrollment classes. Which means you could complete almost a full year of college at a very low cost.

  • Students can take classes that are not offered at their high schools. Dual enrolled students at Alma College can take classes in any of our majors or minors.

  • Experience a true college campus! Most students dual enroll via online classes at other colleges, but at Alma College all of your dual enrollment classes take place on our beautiful campus. This means you actually get to experience interacting with a professor, seeing class presentations, working in study groups, and most importantly, you won’t feel like a “true freshman” when you start your own college career after high school.

  • Our credits travel. Because of Alma’s top academic profile, rigor, and class expectations, credits you earn at Alma College will transfer with you to most colleges that you are considering attending in the future.

  • Alma College allows students to take one or two dual enrollment courses per semester.

  • Dual enrolled students also get access to our full campus. You will have a student ID that will allow you to use our recreation center, attend campus concerts and speakers, go to student organization activities, and take advantage of resources like tutoring and career development.
