Cumberland University is pleased to offer a Dual Enrollment Program that is open to exceptional high school juniors and seniors from partnering institutions and homeschool cooperatives in the Middle Tennessee area. Students interested in participating should have the ability, motivation and maturity to begin their college education prior to their high school graduation.
Taking advantage of Cumberland’s Dual Enrollment Program offers many advantages including:
Access to college-level courses that provide students with a quality learning environment taught by well-qualified professors.
Completion of general education curriculum classes that are a required portion of most institutions two and four-year programs.
In many cases, students will participate in the college-level coursework at their high school, saving time and money.
The opportunity to enroll in college-level courses at a lower tuition rate, saving hundreds of dollars per course.
Students seeking to enroll in the Cumberland University High School Dual Enrollment Program should apply using the “Undergraduate Student” application portal through the Office of Admissions website, www.cumberland.edu/applynow.
Students accepted into the program may earn a maximum of 24 credit hours through dual enrollment.
Dual enrollment students on Cumberland University’s campus will participate in regularly scheduled Cumberland University course sections.
As space permits, accepted dual enrollment students are eligible to enroll into any 100 or 200 level course for which prerequisites have been met.
Dual enrollment students will register after priority registration or with incoming freshmen.
Grades posted on high school transcripts may be weighted and therefore differ from the grade on the student's Cumberland University transcript. Cumberland grades will not be changed to match the high school transcript.
