Dual Enrollment Program

The Dual Enrollment Program, a state-approved, cooperative community venture provided by Walters State Community College, offers qualified high school students the opportunity to receive college credit at a relatively low cost while they complete their secondary education. It is designed to supplement and enrich students' high school experiences by providing access to collegiate education without interrupting their normal high school activities. The program has been successfully implemented in several school systems within the Walters State service area. Earned credits transfer to two-year and four-year accredited institutions from Walters State according to the discretion of the receiving institution.

Advantages of Dual Enrollment

  • Students jump start their college experience and accelerate their college education.
  • Students can earn transferable college credit(s).
  • Students are intellectually and academically challenged.
  • Students have access to collegiate education without interrupting normal high school activities.

Entrance Requirements

  • Admission to the Dual Enrollment Program is available only to junior and senior students from state approved high schools that have distinguished themselves by high academic achievement.
  • Students must have a letter grade of "B" or a numerical average of "88" or an ACT composite of 21.
  • Students enrolling in English Composition sequence or in a college level mathematics course must have appropriate placement levels as determined by the Office of Admissions and Registration Services. (Examples of appropriate placement would be an English sub score of 18 and Math sub score of 19 or higher on tests such as the ACT or PLAN).
  • Students enrolling in HIST 1110 (Survey of Western Civilization I) or 1120 (Survey of Western Civilization II) must have appropriate placement levels as determined by the Office of Admissions and Registration Services. (Example of appropriate placement would be a reading sub score of 19 or higher on tests such as ACT or PLAN).

Admission Requirements

  1. Students must submit a completed Walters State application and a Hepatitis B form.
  2. Students must submit a completed WSCC Dual Enrollment/Advanced Studies Enrollment Permission Form each academic term enrolled (high school principal or counselor, student, and parent signature required).
