In an effort to provide high school juniors and seniors with an opportunity to experience higher education while still in high school, Auburn University offers a dual enrollment program. Qualified high school students may enroll in Auburn University courses on campus or online, potentially earning college credit and high school credits simultaneously, at a reduced cost.
Dual-enrolled students take college courses while still enrolled in and attending high school. Dual-enrolled students might also include students who complete their high school courses in December but will not receive their diploma and officially graduate from high school until the end of spring in their senior year. This gives these students the opportunity to attend Auburn spring term, as they will have already completed their high school classes.
Students interested in joining Auburn's dual enrollment program and participating in college-level work must provide evidence of academic success at the high school level. A minimum ACT of 22 (or SAT equivalent) and a minimum grade-point average of 3.25 are required for consideration.
