Dual Enrollment
We are excited to welcome high school students who desire to challenge themselves by taking
courses at Alma College. We trust that your dual enrollment experience will not only meet that
expectation, but also serve as a perfect introduction to the college classroom. In addition to the
academic rigors, students have reported their dual enrollment experiences also offered an
understanding of how to adapt to different teaching styles and environments, time
management skills, and a greater sense of the world beyond high school. For both parents and
students it can ease the transition from high school to college.
Steps to Dual Enroll at Alma College
1. Pick up the Application for Dual Enrollment at the Alma College Registrar’s Office or
from your high school guidance counselor. A new form is required for each term.
2. If it is your first time dual enrolling at Alma College, our Registrar will need to review
your official high school transcript to ensure you meet the academic requirements.
3. Read the instruction page and complete both sides of the application form. Your
parent/guardian will have to sign in two sections if you are a minor.
4. Meet with your guidance counselor to determine which class(es) to request. It is
important to ask about the financial responsibilities at that time.
5. You must seek permission from the instructor of the class(es). This can often be done by
email, but the Registrar’s office must receive a copy of the email. It is left to the
professor’s discretion if they wish to speak with you in person.
6. Return the completed form to the Registrar’s office.

Instructions for Dual Enrollment Application and Registration
(Keep this for your records)
Students and parents should review all the included instructions and forms before consulting with your high
school counselor or representative. Parent/Guardian consent is required before the application will be
processed. Please note, parent/guardian signature is required in two sections if the student is a minor.
The Registrar of Alma College determines eligibility for dual enrollment based on a minimum high school
grade point average (GPA) of 3.0. The high school must attach the student’s transcript to the application form
for assessment.
Dual enroll students will be registered for classes based on seats available, with preference given to full-time
Alma College students. Once dual enrollment registration is finalized, an email confirmation with a copy of
the form will be sent to parent/guardian, student, and sponsoring school. No high school student will be
displaced by a full-time Alma College student once registration is finalized.
Dual enroll students are considered non-degree students. Such students do not qualify for counseling,
financial aid, health, or placement services. A student fully approved to enroll in Alma College as a non-
degree student may take 4 credits in their first term and up to 8 credits with approval for subsequent terms.
A completed Dual Enrollment Application form with all necessary signatures is required for each term.
Dual enroll students are subject to the standard registration and refund regulations. To withdraw from a
course, the student must turn in a completed Drop/Add Form at the Registrar’s Office. To change from one
course to another, or to a different section of the same course, a new Dual Enrollment Application must be
submitted and approved by all parties.
If the student is eligible for tuition and fee support by their school district, the district will be billed. Any
amounts not paid by the school district or the Michigan Department of Education are the responsibility of the
student or parent/guardian if the student is a minor, and the student will be billed. A financial restriction will
be placed on the student until the balance owed is paid in full. This restriction will place a hold on the student
transcript and/or prevent registering for future classes until the balance is paid.
Once the course is completed and grades are finalized, the student’s official Alma College transcript will be
sent back to their sponsoring high school. The student will also receive one copy of their official transcript
sent by mail to their home address. Any additional transcript requests must be submitted and paid for
through our online ordering system, available on the Registrar’s webpage. A transcript cannot be released
until all balances are paid in full.
Completed Dual Enrollment Applications should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office before the deadline
(June 1 for fall term and December 1 for winter term). They may be hand-delivered, faxed, or emailed. After
the registration has been approved, email confirmation will be sent to the student and to the sponsoring high
school counselor or representative.
Students registered for dual enrollment are required to attend a Dual Enrollment Orientation at Alma College
to get a student ID card, parking pass, textbook information, Alma College email, and other necessary
materials. Days and times will be communicated by the Registrar’s Office or by the Admissions Office of Alma
