Students participating in Dual Enrollment HIT, NAS, RPT, and CIS must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher. Approval from the high school counselor or the home school director is also required. All students receiving scholarships must meet established placement criteria as determined by appropriate ACT, SAT, or placement exam scores.

In Dual Enrollment, we offer classes that are at the college level, with no watering down for high school students. As such, you will need to put in the same amount of preparation and study outside of class as you would for any other college course. Regular study is a must in these classes if you hope to excel. Our goal is for your success!

The student must be in the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade and have a 2.0 GPA or higher for most technical programs. Approval from the high school principal and counselor or the home school director is also required.
Continuous Eligibility: Students who fail to meet this minimum grade requirement or who withdraw from a course will be suspended from the program for a minimum of one term. The one-term suspension may not be served during the summer. The student may not re-enroll until the suspension has been served. For re-entry, the student must reapply to the program and must meet the minimum grade point average requirement of 2.5 or higher.
Each student who receives a Dual Enrollment Technology Scholarship must have declared a technical program of study and only courses required for that program of study will be eligible for scholarship funds.
Dual Enrollment technology scholarship funds may be used to cover not only the required technical courses but required academic courses (English, Math & Science), as well.
Dual Enrollment Technology 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.
Scholarships will only be awarded in those programs approved by the Alabama Community College System. Programs designated as eligible for Dual Enrollment Workforce Development Scholarship funding at Trenholm State Community College include:
