Beginning this fall, homeschooled high school students in the area will be able to earn college credits by taking classes at University College’s new Dual Enrollment Center located at Bell Street.

The dual-enrollment program allows high school students, who meet MTSU’s admission criteria and gain approvals from their guidance counselors, to take college classes before they graduate high school.

With the opening of Andrew Woodfin Miller Sr. Education Center, University College has established a Dual Enrollment Center inside the building that will hold three sections of classes this fall.

Classes that will be offered for the fall semester include introductory courses in psychology, music and communication. These courses, like other dual-enrollment classes, will satisfy general education requirements at MTSU and are transferrable to any state institution.

“We really envision a majority, if not all of the students, that fill up these classes will be homeschooled students,” said Matt Hannah, coordinator of dual-enrollment in University College.

A benefit of this is the dual-enrollment grant offered by the state. Last spring, President Sidney A. McPhee announced a supplemental scholarship by the university that can be coupled with the grant to make the first two MTSU dual-enrollment courses tuition free.

The Dual Enrollment Center will work directly with homeschooled students with the admissions process and pair them with advisers to help them choose the right classes and keep them on track with their coursework.
