Dual Enrollment

Purposes of the Dual Enrollment Program

As part of its mission to prepare servants to walk with Christ, proclaim His truth, and fulfill His mission, Leavell College is offering the Leavell College Dual Enrollment Program. The Leavell College Dual Enrollment Program allows high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to work on fulfilling God’s calling on their lives by earning college credit while still in high school. Approved students are eligible to take up to six credit hours each semester and may earn up to twenty-four hours of college credit through the program.

The Dual Enrollment Program allows qualified juniors and seniors to

• Enroll in college courses while still in high school

• Earn both high school and college-level credit

• Eliminate unnecessary duplication of courses taken in high school and college

• Shorten the length of time required to complete a college degree

• Reduce the cost of a college degree; and

• Enjoy an early college experience.
