Dual Enrollment Materials and Criteria
Qualified students can enroll in college courses while still attending high school. Dual Enrollment courses are facilitated at the participating high school by high school teachers who have partnered with Southeastern faculty. Students earn high school and college credit, with grades appearing on both high school and Southeastern Louisiana University permanent transcripts. In addition to preparing for the rigor of college work, Dual Enrollment students can lower the cost of their college education by earning credit in high school and using TOPS for graduate school.
Dual Enrollment students are admitted to Southeastern as visiting students with access to Moodle, Webmail and the university's online library. Students must meet the eligibility requirements and complete a Dual Enrollment application.
Applicants must be in 11th or 12th grade.
