Dual Enrollment

The courses offered by Trevecca are general elective courses that are regionally accredited and accepted by most liberal arts universities. If you would like to learn more about the courses offered, please click here to view our catalog.

Benefits & Eligibility

Trevecca offers high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to be dually enrolled in select college courses prior to high school graduation.

Some benefits of dual enrollment include:

  • The ability to earn college course credits prior to entering college, so you can graduate college early (or on time), or lighten your college course load
  • A much smoother transition from high school courses to college-level courses
  • A closer look at areas of interest prior to enrolling in college

You are eligible for dual enrollment if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are a current rising high school junior or senior.
  • You have a minimum cumulative high school unweighted GPA of 2.5.
  • You have submitted a qualifying ACT/SAT score if you plan to take an ENG or MATH course (see Course Placement below).
