Dual Enrollment Students

What is dual enrollment? 

Dual enrollment provides qualified high school students with the opportunity to earn college credits while still enrolled in high school. Millersville’s program is primarily on-campus, with occasional offerings for online courses. Students enrolled in dual enrollment should be prepared to perform at the same level, and with the same expectations, of college students. High school students will often not be “identified” on-campus as high school students and should expect to show the same level of responsibility as our full time students. This includes managing their daily schedule, keeping up with a course syllabus, utilizing campus resources (many of which can be found here), and reaching out to professors if they need assistance.

Our Fall 2022 course application is closed. Check back in October for our Spring 2023 course offerings and application.

What are the dual enrollment guidelines?

  • Students should be juniors or seniors in high school.
  • Students should have exhausted all or most of the academically challenging coursework offered by their high school.
  • Students should at least meet, or preferably exceed, typical admissions guidelines.
    • Recommended criteria for the current year are:
      • Grades B or better (approximate GPA of 3.0 or higher)
  • Students should submit an electronic application for Dual Enrollment (Paper applications are no longer accepted).
  • Students must select courses from the approved course list. Students should only apply for courses they would like to enroll in. 

How much does it cost?

Millersville charges a reduced rate to students attending one of our partner schools (check with your school counselor for more information). Dual enrolled students receive 50% off the tuition and are charged the university’s per-credit technology fee. For students not attending a partner school, the full tuition rate and fees will be charged.

Please see the Office of Student Accounts website for the estimated tuition costs.

    Can I take more than 2 courses in one semester?

    Students wishing to enroll in more than 2 courses should apply initially, before the deadline, for their top 2 course choices. After the deadline and after all students have been placed into their first choices, students may request a third choice by email to the admissions office with their request. Third course requests are subject to space availability.

    When are course schedules released?

    • Fall semester courses are announced in mid-March.
    • Spring semester courses are announced in mid-October.
    • Summer session courses are announced in early March.

    The application asks for my high school transcript. How do I submit it?

    Millersville allows dual enrollment applicants to submit an unofficial high school transcript. Please upload a PDF of your transcript when completing your application.

    Please note: If you decide to apply to Millersville as a degree-seeking student after high school graduation, you will be required to submit an official high school transcript from your high school counseling office.

    When will I receive an update on my application?

    Within 2-3 weeks after the application date, students will receive a communication to their application email including admissions information and course(s) confirmation. Parents and school counselors will be included on this email.

    After students are placed into courses, students are encouraged to check their Millersville University email address regularly for important updates related to their course(s). Parents and school counselors will not be included on emails sent to Millersville University email addresses.

    How will my high school receive my final grade after I complete my course?

    Please complete the transcript release form that is linked below and submit the completed form to the Registrar's Office at Millersville University. Completion of this form provides the University with permission to release your grade(s) to your high school or homeschool association. Please submit your transcript release form immediately after applying for dual enrollment to avoid delays at the end of the semester.
