Dual Enrollment provides an opportunity for qualified high school students to earn college credit while working towards their high school diploma. High school credit may or may not be granted according to the discretion of the participating student's high school. Dual enrollment affords students educational advancement in specific areas where unusual ability and interest are displayed, especially in courses and academic areas not available in the student's high school. Note: Some colleges/universities will not accept college credit for college courses used to meet high school graduation requirements.
Students are responsible for registering for their classes. This is not done by Lansing Community College or the student's high school. Students are also responsible for dropping unwanted classes and being aware of the refund deadlines.
Do not depend on being dropped for non-payment or non-attendance to avoid outstanding balances or failing grades.
Eligibility Requirements for High School Dual Enrollment
- Be working toward high school graduation requirements
- Have completed the 8th grade by the first day of the semester attending classes at LCC
Steps for Success
1. APPLY TO THE COLLEGE
Apply online or visit the StarZone to meet with our admissions team to receive in-person assistance with the application. You will need:
- Your Permanent Address
- Contact Information
- Education History
- Intended Program of Study
- Social Security Number (Note: This is required for Financial Aid)
2. ACTIVATE OR RECOVER YOUR STUDENT ACCOUNT
After you apply and receive your student number (X00...), activate your LCC account.
3. FILL OUT AND SUBMIT YOUR DUAL ENROLLMENT APPROVAL FORM
High school and home schooled students are required to complete and submit the High School Dual Enrollment Approval Form. A completed approval form must be submitted for each semester of enrollment prior to registering for classes. Approval for multiple semesters up to an entire academic year (fall, spring, and summer) may be provided on one form by indicating all three semesters on the same form.
Submit the Approval Form to the LCC Registrar's Office prior to registering for class(es). The form may be submitted by email, U.S. mail or in person at the StarZone in the Gannon Building (addresses are provided on the form). Allow a minimum of 3 business days for processing. Incomplete or incorrectly completed forms may take longer.
Note: You will need the username of X00 number from Step 2 on this form in order to submit it for processing.
Placement levels (and sometimes, prerequisite courses) are required in order to register for classes. There are a few ways you can establish levels:
- Upload your SAT/ACT scores and/or high school transcripts and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. LCC also accepts PSAT scores.
- If you are not able to access any of the above documents, you can take our placement tests. Please visit testing services for more information.
5. ESTABLISH FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY
If the student's high school is to be billed for the courses taken, a Dual Enrollment Billing Authorization or Non-Public Dual Enrollee Billing Information Form must be on file prior to the student's payment due date. Billing forms must be submitted every semester of dual enrollment. If the high school is only paying a portion of the total bill, the student must pay the remaining balance before registering for classes for a subsequent semester or by the end of the semester for which they are being billed. If the high school is not paying, you will need to notify the college that you will be signing up for a payment plan once you register for classes.
Note: Home school students are eligible for funding only if they are enrolled in a minimum of one class at a public high school or state approved non-public high school.
6. REGISTER FOR CLASSES
After completing the steps above, you are ready to register for classes! If you need help, reach out to your K-2 Liaisons at 517-583-9666, or visit the StarZone in the Gannon Building. You can also register on your own in Banner, just log into MyLCC.
