Dual enrollment programs are collaborative efforts between high schools and colleges in which high school students are permitted to enroll in college courses and, in most cases, earn college credit. Credits earned through dual enrollment are included on students’ college transcripts.
Dual Enrollment Through Mid Michigan Community College
Dual enrollment is structured for students to complete as "cohorts". Students are expected to begin and continue within this cohort with the course sequence scheduled. The course sequence is designed to follow the Michigan Transfer Agreement. This is used to best facilitate the transfer of credits to four-year universities.
Students must meet certain expectations while attending the college classes. An Expectation Agreement must be signed by both the parent and student in order to participate. Students must understand that they are attending college level classes with college level expectations taught by college instructors.
Dual Enrollment Through Baker College
The unique dual enrollment collaboration between HISD and Baker will allow students the opportunity to "jump start" their college experience, while developing career specific training in the high demand fields of Computer Networking and Computer Science.
The partnership will provide a direct benefit to the regional and state need for highly trained individuals in the industry.
