  • Complete an EMCC application for admission online.

  • Submit an official high school transcript to EMCC to verify your GPA. You must have a 2.5 or better, on a 4-point scale, on all high school courses. Home-schooled students must send a notarized transcript.

  • Submit your ACT scores to determine eligibility (documented on transcript). ACT scores are needed to enroll in English, math and advanced science classes.

  • Have your high school principal or counselor submit an unconditional letter of recommendation for acceptance into the Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit program. Home schooled students may present a notarized letter from parent or home school association.

  • Costs for Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit classes at EMCC:
    $104 per 3 credit hour class (for additional 3 hour classes, $39 per class)
    $107 per 4 credit hour class (for additional 4 hour classes, $42 per class)
    Course fees, lab fees and textbooks are the responsibility of the student.
    Tuition costs are subject to change in subsequent academic years.

  • If you are taking Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit classes at your high school, speak with your guidance counselor about costs.

  • Upon acceptance to the program, your high school counselor will help you with the next steps to apply and advise you on the college courses that are right for you.

  • Credit earned during Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit is recorded on the college transcript and may be released to another institution, or used for college graduation requirements, only after students have received high school diplomas.
