MGCCC encourages qualified high school students to apply for admission under the college’s dual-enrollment/dual-credit program. Through dual enrollment, academically talented students are able to enroll at MGCCC while still attending high school classes. Students involved in dual credit courses may be eligible to receive high school and college credit concurrently. Students must meet the following provisions:
- Complete the application for admission.
- Submit the Dual Enrollment/Dual Credit Verification Form signed by their high school counselor or principal stating that the student has met one of the following:
- For academic courses, the student has earned 14 Core Carnegie Units with a 3.0 or better grade point average on a 4.0 grading scale.
- For career and technical education courses, the student is classified as a sophomore with a 2.0 or better grade point average on a 4.0 grading scale.
- The student has achieved a minimum composite score of 30 on the ACT test. If meeting the ACT test requirement, official scores must be submitted to the Admissions Office.
- Provide official high school transcript indicating grades through the last semester of attendance.
The above requirements should be completed well in advance of the intended semester of enrollment. A discussion with a college enrollment specialist concerning course selections must be completed before registration takes place. Credit earned through the dual-enrollment/dual-credit program will be awarded once a student has completed high school graduation requirements and final official transcripts have been received.
