Trenholm State's Dual Enrollment Program
Access the path to your dreams
Dual Enrollment is a program designed for eligible high school students to enroll in college classes while they also attend high school. Students successfully completing dual enrollment classes receive both high school and college credit. Students can also apply their college credits to earn a certified credential upon graduation or use them to transfer to a 4-year college or university.
- Earn dual credit to satisfy high school graduation requirements while earning college credit at the same time
- Become acclimated to the college atmosphere
- Earn a short term certificate
- Earn transfer credits that can be used when applying to the college/university of your choice
- Saves money and decreases the timeframe to earn a college degree
Students must meet the following requirements to participate in Dual Enrollment:
- Be a rising sophomore or currently enrolled in the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade
- Have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (unweighted for academic/STEM courses) and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (unweighted for CTE courses)
- Request that the school counselor provide the student’s current high school transcript
- Submit a signed authorization form for each semester of participation
**Course Placement Testing (Accuplacer) may be required before enrolling in college-level Math and/or English courses**
Students who meet the criteria for initial admission in Dual Enrollment will remain continuously eligible as long as a grade of “C” or better is earned in all attempted college coursework. Students who fail to meet this minimum grade requirement or who withdraw from a course will be suspended from Dual Enrollment for a minimum of one semester (not including the summer semester). The student may not re-enroll until the suspension has been served.
For re-entry, the student must reapply to the program and meet the minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 (unweighted) for academic courses and a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (unweighted) for technical courses.
Dual enrollment scholarship funds may be used to cover tuition, textbooks, and supplies depending on the availability of funds, the needs of the individual student, and the requirements of the technical classes. The scope of each scholarship is determined by available funding and the scholarship grant guidelines. Costs covered will be determined on an individual basis.

Advising is the process of preparing for the instruction and training required for the program of study a student wishes to pursue. At Trenholm State, students work individually with advisors to plan, select appropriate courses, and learn of college resources that are available to help them achieve degree completion.
Please contact the Dual Enrollment Coordinator to make an appointment.
Step 1 Submit the Trenholm State Admission Application.
Step 2 Review the Schedule of Classes.
