Admission of Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit for High School Students
The purpose of this policy is to allow eligible high school students to enroll in college classes concurrently with high school classes, either on the college campus or at the high school, and to receive both high school and college credit. Institutions within the Alabama Community College System are authorized to establish dual enrollment/dual credit programs with local boards of education in the College service area. Courses offered by postsecondary institutions shall be of postsecondary level and enrolled students must pay normal tuition as required by the postsecondary institution, or as stipulated in a contract for services between the two levels. A student is eligible for dual enrollment/dual credit if the student meets all of the following criteria: 1. The student must meet the entrance requirements established by Lurleen B. Wallace Community College, an institution of postsecondary education. In the absence of an Alabama driver’s license or state -issued ID card, a student may provide a certified copy of their birth certificate to establish U.S. citizenship and a printout of the student information profile sheet from iNow signed and dated by their high school principal to establish current residency and identification. The profile sheet must show the student’s home address and include the student’s photo. 2. The student has a minimum cumulative unweighted 2.5 grade point average in completed high school courses. Transcripts must be provided as documentation of the student’s cumulative grade average. 3. The student must have written approval of the appropriate high school representative. Student access to Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment is dependent upon both academic readiness and social maturity. Approval from the high school representative indicates that the student has demonstrated both. Unless the student can demonstrate the ability to benefit from college level instruction, special education students are not eligible for enrollment under this policy. 4. The student must be in grade 10, 11, or 12 or have an exception granted by the ACCS Chancellor upon recommendation of the stude nt’s principal and superintendent and in accordance with Alabama Administrative Code 290-8-9.12 regarding gifted and talented students. 5. Dually enrolled students registering for college-level English or math courses must be placed into courses using the current ACCS approved placement guidelines. Students who do not register for college-level English or math courses are not required to take any English or math placement test regardless of grade levels.
