A few select high schools in Middle Tennessee partner with Lipscomb to offer one or more “dual enrollment” classes. These classes not only meet high school juniors’ and seniors’ requirements for high school graduation but also earn college credit that can be applied to their graduation requirements at the college, typically at a much lower cost for the course if taken as a college student.
In addition, home-schooled students and students from local high schools may have the opportunity to come to campus to take classes. It is up to the individual student to deal with the details regarding high school credits, class compatibility, etc.
Requirements and Prerequisites
To be considered for a dual enrollment class, the student must have a 2.5 GPA and an ACT composite of 21, or the SAT equivalent.
Students must be admitted to the university by August 1 for fall semester, and December 1 for spring semester.
Prerequisites vary by the course chosen and must be met prior to registration. Students must earn a “C” or higher in the dual enrollment classes to continue with additional courses in that subject area.
Fees are waived for students participating in Lipscomb's dual enrollment program at a partner school. Students wishing to take on-campus dual enrollment classes will pay the regular $50 application fee.
The application is valid for one year and can be used to enroll in courses during this one-year period. A new application form is required every 12 months.
