Dual-Enrollment Students

The MTSU Dual Enrollment program allows high school students to complete coursework online or on campus. In some cases, classes might be available at Central Magnet School in Murfreesboro and coming soon to other area high schools. It's a perfect choice for students who plan to attend MTSU, but course credits are transferable anywhere in Tennessee.

Credits for advanced placement classes and dual enrollment coursework will look the same on a high school transcript. So what's the difference?

  • In a dual enrollment course at MTSU you will be taught university-level content by a college professor.
  • Course subjects are not typically available at the high school level.
  • Instead of a one-shot AP test at the end of the semester, you'll get an immersive experience with continual feedback via tests and assignments as well as the opportunity to interact with collegiate peers.
  • Grades are posted to both high school and college transcripts.
  • Graduate with distinction. Students will be recognized as graduating from high school "with distinction" if they attain a B average and earn 12 or more semester hours of transcripted postsecondary credit. Each local school board will develop a policy prescribing how students graduating with distinction will be noted and recognized.

Course Offerings

There are wide variety of courses that a dual enrollment student at MTSU can take. Some offerings include:

  • English Composition
  • Introduction to Philosophy
  • Physics
  • College Algebra
  • Cultural Anthropology
  • Introduction to Music
  • American Government and Politics
  • General Psychology
  • Introduction to Sociology
  • Dance Appreciation
  • Theatre Appreciation
   

Currently enrolled high school students who wish to attend MTSU must meet the following requirements:

  1. Be a junior or senior in high school;
  2. Have a minimum 3.0 high school GPA;
  3. Have a minimum composite of 22 (SAT composite of 1020); (Students enrolling in English or mathematics must have a minimum score of 20 on respective subject areas.)

Cost for Dual Enrollment

Tuition is charged at the credit hour rate. For more information, click here for the Fall 2013/Spring 2014 undergraduate fee chart.

Dual Enrollment Grant

The state of Tennessee offers assistance for students enrolled in dual enrollment courses through the Dual Enrollment Grant Program. MTSU administers this grant on a reimbursement basis, so students must be prepared to pay the cost of the course up front. Students will receive reimbursement mid-semester. Students must submit the online application to be considered for the grant.
