High School Dual Enrolled Students
Dual Enrollment allows high school students to earn college credits while still in high school.
High School students who qualify under the Postsecondary Enrollment Act may use funding from their K–12 district or the Department of Treasury to pay for classes taken at Schoolcraft. Students not eligible for funding under the Postsecondary Enrollment Act may choose to be dual enrolled, but students/parents would be responsible for payment. To learn more about the Postsecondary Enrollment Act or to view frequently asked questions, visit the Michigan Department of Education Dual Enrollment web page.
Dual Enrolled students who are in need of financial assistance should contact Admissions and Welcome Center at 734-462-4683 to discuss.
