Dual Enrollment

Dual enrollment courses are a great way for high school juniors and seniors to get a jump start on their college education. By attending courses taught by a Milligan professor, students earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Dual enrollment credits are transferable to the college of your choice. 

High school juniors and seniors with a 3.0 minimum GPA are eligible to take dual enrollment courses at Milligan.

Dual Enrollment Courses

Art, Bible, Biology, Business Administration, Chemistry, Communications, Composition, Computer Information Systems, Computer Science, Economics, English, Exercise Science, Foreign Languages, Geography, Graphic Design, Mathematics, Music, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Sociology, Theatre, and MORE. 

Cost & Scholarship

The charge for dual enrollment courses is $500 per class, up to 3 classes per semester; any additional classes are billed at the traditional undergraduate tuition rate. All course fees apply. Tennessee residents may be able to take a course at no cost with a Tennessee Lottery Dual Enrollment Grant. The Tennessee Dual Enrollment Grant is available for up to $500 for each of the first four courses. The grant only applies to 100- and 200-level courses. Learn more »
