Dual Enrollment Programs
High School Dual Enrollment
Dual enrollment provides an opportunity for high school students with demonstrated academic potential to enroll in selected UM-Dearborn courses while completing their high school graduation requirements.
The purpose of the program is to supplement and enrich the educational experience by allowing students to pursue course work which otherwise would not be available. Admission as a dual enrolled student is a special non-degree status. Students are expected to complete all graduation requirements mandated by his/her high school. Dual Enrollment students are granted full privileges of UM-Dearborn students, including use of the library and recreational facilities and the opportunity to purchase student tickets to cultural and athletic events at the University of Michigan. Dual enrollment students may enroll for a maximum of eight credit hours per semester per semester unless additional hours are approved by the Director of Admissions.
Students seeking admission to a degree program after high school graduation must apply and meet all minimum admission criteria. Students will benefit from already having college credits achieved to apply toward their degree.

To Apply for Admission
Apply as early as possible. The deadline for all documents is August 15 for the fall semester and December 15 for the winter semester. No admission decision will be made until all of the following have been completed and received:
- The Dual Enrollment application.
- Course Permission and Calculation Worksheet. Be sure to select alternative courses. Must be signed by your high school principal.
- An official transcript (including test scores, if applicable).
- Freshmen and Sophomores Only: Personal Statement and Test Scores (if applicable)
Dual Enrollment Orientation and Registration
Students will be notified of their admission status by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and information about orientation and registration will be sent to you after you are admitted. Admission to dual enrollment status does not guarantee the ability to enroll in the class(es) specified on the Course Permission and Calculation Worksheet, but every effort will be made to accommodate the student’s request.
Note: Students must receive a grade of C or higher in dual enrollment course(s) at UM-Dearborn to be eligible to register for the next semester. Students who receive below a C grade will be contacted by a Dual Enrollment representative after grades are posted. Students must submit a new application for each semester they wish to enroll.
