The Dual Enrollment program at Lawrence Tech provides juniors and seniors the opportunity to complete their high school diplomas and earn college level credits at the same time.
To be eligible for the Dual Enrollment program, high school juniors and seniors must have:
a 3.0 or higher GPA in core subjects
There are three steps to submitting an application for dual enrollment.
Fill out the on-line application as a “First -Year” student. On the third screen of the application, close to the bottom, there will be this question. “Are you applying to be a non-degree seeking student?” Answer “yes.” And continue.
Ask your high school to email your official high school transcripts to Emily Phelan at firstname.lastname@example.org. This can also be sent via Parchment to Lawrence Tech.
Submit the Dual Enrollment Supplemental Form. The form will ask for the specific name of the course you want to take and must be signed by your parent or guardian and your principal or guidance counselor. Email the completed form to Emily Phelan at email@example.com.

Click on course name to see what prerequisites are required. Many courses require an SAT/ACT score. If you have not had a chance to take that yet, we can have you take a placement assessment to see if you can place into the course. You will take a placement assessment at home on your computer with a web cam and we will proctor via Zoom.
Unsure which course to take? Most students take entry level math or English courses such as precalculus, calculus, basic composition and college composition. Depending on the major you intend to study in college, you could take an entry level course within your major.
Once all of your documents are received, your eligibility and the necessary prerequisites for your selected course will be confirmed. If everything is in order, you will receive a notice of admission and directions on how to register via the email you supplied in your application.
Included in the email will be payment instructions. Lawrence Tech offers its dual enrollment courses at the reduced rate of $500 per course. You should check with your school to see if they have a program to cover this.
Please be aware that admission is granted on a semester basis, so each semester you will have to go through the process of applying.
