Earn college credit while in high school by dual enrolling

High school students can enroll in courses at Davenport University in our Dual Enrollment program under the Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act. Credits earned through dual enrollment may be simultaneously applied toward high school and college. 

Why dual enroll?

  • Get a taste of college life and ensure a smooth transition from high school to college
  • Get tuition at an 80% savings or even free! Your high school may pay 100%.
  • Get a head start on college graduation by earning up to 60 credits

Two easy steps to dual enroll

Are you ready to register in a dual enrollment class? 

1. Apply for Admission

To submit your application for dual enrollment admission you will need:

  • Contact information for your High School Counselor (name & email). If you are homeschooled you will provide parent/guardian information.
  • Courses that you wish to register for (if known). Need help deciding? View our course schedule or contact dualenroll@davenport.edu for guidance.
  • Homeschooled or private school students: you will need your UIC number (unique identification code). This is found at the Michigan Department of Education site

2. Authorization from your High School Counselor

When you submit your application, an approval form will be sent directly to your High School Counselor. This approval is mandatory for DU to process your enrollment. If you are homeschooled, your parent/guardian will be sent the information for approval.

After approval, you will be registered in courses and will receive confirmation information from DU's Dual Enrollment admissions team.
