Online Dual Enrollment Courses

Dual enrollment students can get a head start with college while learning online from Southern Adventist University professors. These courses count as credit toward a high school diploma as well as a college degree and offer high school seniors a taste of college with convenient online scheduling. Students may take up to 6 credit hours per semester through this program. 

The application process to register for dual enrollment courses has now moved fully online. To begin, please click here to apply.  Please note that applications must be submitted online one week (five business days) before classes begin. Due to office closures for the winter holiday, applications for Winter semester courses must be submitted no later than December 1st. This gives us and the student sufficient time to complete the application process and enroll the student before classes begin.

Here are the steps to getting registered for dual enrollment classes:

  1. The student completes the online application found here. Then, the parent and school contact (registrar) are each sent an email, asking them to complete a short online form. Once the parent completes this form, they will be sent a second email asking for payment information.
  2. A decision is made to accept the student, and an email is sent to them with instructions on creating a Southern account, and signing the Financial Responsibility Agreement.
  3. The student is registered, and will receive one final email with information on how to access their online course(s).

What can I expect from a dual enrollment class, and what will be expected of me? Dual enrollment classes are not self-paced, and have weekly deadlines for submitting assignments.
