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 and 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 is fully online. Applications must be submitted online one week (five business days) before classes start.

Steps to register for dual enrollment classes are below:

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