Dual enrollment courses are college courses that are taught by an adjunct or full-time professor at Kendall College of Art and Design or in a high school setting. Courses can be used for both high school and college credit. Students must meet legislated dual enrollment guidelines to enroll for dual enrollment. Some dual enrollment courses may be offered at a high school location.
It's a great way for highly motivated high school students who are strong in art and design to get a jump on college. You may even be eligible to receive tuition support through the State of Michigan - State School Aid Act. Speak to your school counselor for eligibility requirements and more information.
