What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual Enrollment means taking courses that count for both high school graduation credit and college credit. Minimum requirements for dual enrollment are:
- 3.25 GPA
- two letters of recommendation from a current TCPS teacher
- 20 composite ACT and/or minimum benchmark in core subjects
- provide your own transportation to and from classes
How to Dual Enroll:
- After taking the ACT and making sure you meet the minimum requirements, ask at least one of your teachers to complete the letter of recommendation form (obtained in the guidance office).
- Second, make sure your parents are interested and willing to support your efforts. Maintaining your courses on TCPS campus as well as at the university level require maturity and time maintenance, not just a willingness. Your parents will need to assist you in applying for financial aid* as well, such as the HOPE grant.
- Third, register and attend an information session with your parent(s). This information session will be incredibly helpful in answering your most basic of questions.
- Lastly, our guidance office will ensure you have the courses for high school graduation met, and it will provide some suggested course offerings that meet your academic needs and personal interests. We will connect with the dual enrollment officer at Lee University to provide you with a simple registration experience.
Our goal in all things at TCPS is to honor the Lord through our studies and interactions with others. TCPS reserves the right to deny dual enrollment access to any student who does not meet the minimum requirements and/or does not exemplify a Christ-like attitude on or off campus.

Dual enrollment is not for every student. It requires extra work academically, and it may interfere with extra-curricular activities. Please pray with your parents before making this important decision.
*Financial Aid: Affording dual enrollment is easy with the HOPE grant. Applications need to be completed with your parents online. Students may merit up to $300 per semester; grant renewal contingent upon meeting specific academic requirements.
