A student who is currently attending high school may register to take courses under Meridian Community College’s Academic Dual Credit/Enrollment program provided he/she:
- earned 14 core Carnegie units as documented by an official high school transcript,
- maintained a 3.00 grade point average or better on all high school courses as documented by an official high school transcript,
- received an unconditional written recommendation from their high school principal or counselor, with at least one parent/legal guardian’s approval, as documented by this form.
Note: Students should be aware that they must maintain a 2.0 GPA or higher in dual credit classes to be eligible for financial aid at MCC. Remedial college coursework is ineligible for dual credit consideration for academic courses at MCC. To safeguard a student's financial aid eligibility, it is recommended students maintain a 2.5 GPA during the first two (2) courses and all coursework thereafter. A grade of "C" or higher is required for a course to be counted for post-secondary credit.
Academic Dual Credit/Enrollment/Early Admissions applicants must submit an application for admission, an official high school transcript and this completed form. Students must meet the academic and pre-requisite course requirements (i.e. score on a standardized test, etc.) for placement in a specific course(s).
Students who are home schooled must submit a transcript prepared by a parent, guardian or custodian with a signed, sworn affidavit. They must also have a written recommendation from the parent, guardian or custodian as documented by this form.
A student who is not a junior or senior may enroll at MCC under the Dual Credit/Enrollment program if he/she has a composite score of 30 or higher on the American College Test (ACT) in addition to the 3.00 grade point average and unconditional recommendation as documented by this form.
Under MCC’s General Education Early Admission program, a student who is classified as a junior or senior and has earned an ACT composite of 26 or higher may enroll as a full-time student provided a principal or guidance counselor recommends that it is in the best educational interest of the student.
