Dual Enrollment

According to the Montana University System Operational Guidelines for Dual Enrollment and Other Secondary-Postsecondary Credit Opportunities, Dual Enrollment is the broad term for various types of opportunities for high school students to take college coursework while they are enrolled in high school.

A Dual Credit course awards both high school credit and college credit for a college course taken by the high school student. The decision to award high school credit for the college course rests with the school district, provided that the decision is consistent with applicable laws, policies, and administrative rules.

Seek advice from your high school counselor. If dual credit is requested, your high school counselor will determine course applicability and credit equivalency. The high school is the final authority on what is required for high school graduation. The student is responsible for making sure all requirements are met.

Parents and High School Students - Check with your high school counselor to see if your school has a dual enrollment agreement with City College at MSU Billings.
