Dual Enrollment

Did you know that you can attend college while still in high school? You can - and it's easier than you think! Lawrence Technological University's Dual Enrollment Program gives you the opportunity to earn college credits at the times that work for you! If you’re doing well in your current classes and have the skills and abilities to take college-level courses, dual enrollment can move your college career forward while you are still in high school. Once you graduate from high school, you can apply to a degree program at Lawrence Tech, provided you meet the minimum admission criteria, with the credits you’ve already earned. 



In the Dual Enrollment Program, you are admitted to Lawrence Tech under special status, and you have all the privileges regular students enjoy, including use of the library and recreational facilities, and the opportunity to purchase student tickets to cultural and athletic events. To be eligible for the Dual Enrollment Program, you must meet the following requirements:

  • High school junior or senior
  • Completion of at least two courses in more than one area of study in the following subjects: biology, chemistry, physics, or physical science
  • 3.0 or higher recalculated GPA in core subjects

Steps to apply to dual enroll at LTU - Fall 2020

1. Fill out online application at ltu.edu/apply 
- Select "First Year" application
- One of the application questions will ask if you want to be a non-degree seeking student, select "yes"

2. Submit official high school transcripts
- Can be emailed to Emily Wegner at ewegner@ltu.edu directly from the high school
- Can be sent via Parchment to Lawrence Tech  

3. Submit Dual Enroll Supplemental Form - linked here
- Form must contain specific course name that student is permitted to take
- Student, parent and school must sign off on form - since schools are mostly closed at this time and obtaining a physical signature may be troublesome, students may have their guidance counselor or principle email written permissions for their specific course to Emily Wegner at ewegner@ltu.edu along with the form

4. Select a course to take - Students must meet prerequisites for course they are applying to take; course prerequisites are listed in the course catalog descriptions found here - LTU Course Catalog
- Search for Fall 2020 from the drop down
- Select subject of course you want to take; examples: Math/Computer Science for a math course, Communication for an English course
- 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. 

5. Once all documents are submitted, students will be reviewed for the course they want to take.  Upon admission, directions on how to register will be sent via email from ewegner@ltu.edu.  Courses will be offered at a discounted rate of $500 per course.  Directions on how to pay (or have your high school pay) will be included in the email.

Admission is granted on a semester basis. If you are looking to take courses multiple semesters at Lawrence Tech, you will need to submit an updated application and transcripts. For additional information on this and other Dual Enrollment programs offered at Lawrence Technological University, contact Emily Wegner at ewegner@ltu.edu.
