Best course availability
For early registration for fall or spring dual-enrollment courses, please submit your application materials one week prior to each semester for best course availability.
Admitted dual-enrollment students will contact the registrar (when directed by admissions) and receive advising as needed. Upper level courses (300 and above) would not be appropriate for most dual-enrollment students but may be allowed after consultation with the registrar.
High school juniors and seniors can apply for dual enrollment up to one week before the start of the semester.
High school students are welcome to dually enroll in Calvin’s summer courses! The application materials remain the same (see “Required Admissions Materials”), and you can find what summer courses are available by visiting our Summer Term page.
The summer course tuition rate for dually enrolled students is $413 per credit hour.
Students that register for dual-enrollment courses at Calvin may be eligible for four "no-cost" dual-enrollment credits during the Summer I session. The Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act states “If 50% of the university class/term falls within the local district’s regular academic year (calendar), pupils must be allowed to enroll and receive tuition/fee support.” So, if 50 percent of the Calvin course meets during your school district’s regularly scheduled school year, the first four credits will fall under the no-cost tuition.
Questions about tuition for dual-enrollment summer courses can be directed to Financial Services.
Senior capstone courses, or any course labeled 395, are not open to dually enrolled students. Additionally, students may not enroll in a classroom section of a course if they are not able to register for a corresponding lab section (if required). Calvin University suggests that dual-enrollment applicants speak with the registrar or their prospective professor if they are unsure if they are capable of success in that course.
Calvin University allows students who have not been admitted into the Honors program (including dual-enrollment students) to register for honors-level courses with advice from a professor or registrar.
A transcript is sent directly to your high school once grades are posted. Students can print a personal copy or request an official transcript.
