About College Credit Plus Dual Enrollment
Through BGSU's College Credit Plus Dual Enrollment option, students have the opportunity to take college classes and earn college credit on the high school campus if the high school has partnered with BGSU to offer courses under one of the current three options of course delivery.
Students may enroll in this program for fall or spring semester during their high school academic calendar year.
At the time of application, a 3.0 minimum cumulative grade point average is required for all applicants. The GPA is calculated on a 4.0 scale and presented on the official high school transcript. Report cards will not be accepted. (For and 7th and 8th-grade students only, schools should provide grade cards.)
Students must also demonstrate college readiness in reading by providing an ACCUPLACER Reading score of 80 or higher -or- an ACT Reading subscore of 20 or higher.
Available classes will depend on teacher qualifications and availability of BGSU mentors that are paired up with the high school teacher.
Textbooks and any special course fees will be paid for by the high school district.
