Dual Enrollment

Who is eligible to Dual Enroll? 

  • Students who are enrolled in at least one course at Berkley High School. 
  • Students who hold a 3.5 GPA or higher.

What kinds of classes can I take? 

  • Any course that is academically or career oriented.  
  • Any course that is not already available at Berkley High School.  
  • Any class that is worth 2 or more college credits. 

Where can I take Dual Enrollment courses? 

  • Any Michigan college or university that will accept you based on your guest student application.
  • Most commonly attended schools for Berkley High School students are: OCC, Lawrence Tech, Wayne State.

What would my schedule look like at BHS if I Dual Enroll?

  • You will need to be enrolled in a minimum of one class per semester and a maximum of five total classes at BHS. In other words, to be dual enrolled you must drop at least one of your BHS classes.
  • You are responsible for your own transportation. Students must follow the college calendar (spring break, winter break, etc. do not always align with Berkley’s calendar).
  • You are expected to attend college classes whenever they are in session. Students must select a college course that meets outside of school hours.

What is the cost associated with Dual Enrollment?

  • Based on State per pupil funding, in 2019-20 Berkley Schools paid $708.25 per college course. This may change from year to year.
  • If the tuition/fees for your class is more costly than this amount, the student is responsible for paying the difference.
  • The student is responsible to pay for books, lab fees or any other needed materials.
  • The student is responsible for their own transportation. 

Will I earn both College and High School Credit?

  • You will earn high school credit at Berkley and your grade will transfer and factor into your high school GPA.
  • You will earn college credit with whatever institution you study with. However, it will be up to your final college choice (that you enroll in after you graduate) as to whether or not they will accept the credit as college credit. 

When do I sign up?

WATCH FOR college admissions & registration deadlines!
 

  • If you are interested in Fall Dual Enrollment:
    • Please see your counselor during the month of May during the preceding school year (this is when colleges usually list their fall schedules).
    • Do not wait until August, as deadlines may have passed and classes may be full.
