Program Policy

Mineral Area College - Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment

Thank you for your interest in Dual Enrollment through MAC! Dual Enrollment is similar, but also somewhat different from Dual Credit. If you take Dual Enrollment classes, it means you are taking classes either online or on one of MAC's campuses. At the end of the semester, you will submit official grades to your high school counselor in order to receive high school credit.

What are the requirements and how do I sign up?

  • Be a junior or senior or at least 16 years of age
  • Have the consent of your parent or legal guardian to enroll.
  • Each semester fill out the online MAC "High School Application" under the admissions tab at www.mineralarea.edu.
  • Make sure ACT and/or Compass scores are sent to MAC - contact your counselor for assistance.
  • Have your high school counselor send the name(s) of courses you wish to take to the dual credit office.
  • Not have any holds on MAC records.

 

How much does it cost? 

The same rates as dual credit, plus a $45 technology fee per class if you are taking webclass(es).

What classes can I take?

***  Any! ***

Whatever we offer on campus or on the web, you can take as long as you have the test scores and/or pre-reqs to qualify!
