opportunity to attend and earn college
GBHS Guidelines

scores on the PLAN, ACT or MME.
Students can dual enroll for up to 10
courses in their high school career.

Or it must be a course where the student
has exhausted that subject at GB High
Or it is a course that the Board of
Education allows because an unworkable
scheduling conflict exists.
The school district pays a set amount for
the tuition, fees and registration costs.
If the course costs are above that amount,
it is the responsibility of the parents to pay
the additional amount.
Qualifying Scores
PLAN: Math=19, Reading=17,
Science=21, English=15
ACT: Math=22, Reading=21,
Science=24, English=18

Here’s an Example:
If state allowance per semester is $3668
and the student has dual enrollment as a
6th hour class, 1/6th of the allowance would
be $611.
If the student has a full schedule and wants
to dual enroll as a 7th hour class, 1/7th of
the allowance would be $524.
It is the responsibility of the parent to pay
additional fees beyond that amount.
Scheduling Options
1st through 5th hours taking high school
classes, 6th hour dual enrolled
1st through 4th hours taking high school
classes, 5th & 6th dual enrolled
1st through 6th hours taking high school
classes, 7th hour dual enrolled
Scheduling (cont.)
The class must be at a time that does
not conflict with student’s regular
school day.
Dual enrollment does not work well
during a band member’s marching
season or an athlete’s sport season.
High School and College Credit
The college course grade is recorded on
the high school transcript.
(i.e. 4.0=A, 3.5=B+)
Some college courses may be weighted if
the content is above our AP level courses.
Courses with 3-4 credit/contact hours
receive .5 credit on the transcript.
Courses with 5+ credit/contact hours
receive 1 credit on the transcript.
Examples of Courses
Human Anatomy and Physiology
Criminal Justice
Music Appreciation

Advantages of Community College
for Dual Enrollment
Credits are usually more transferrable
from a community college to a 4-year
The course fees and materials usually
are covered 100% by the district.
Receiving College Credit
It is the decision of each university
whether or not they will accept transfer
credit from another college.
www.michigantransfernetwork.org is a
great website to see if one college’s
credit will transfer to another.
A transcript will need to be requested
and sent to the college the student
plans to attend after high school
