Dual Enrolled High School Students

Get a jump on your college career.

Local high school students who are exceptionally strong academically are welcome to take college-level courses at the College of Charleston in their senior (and in some cases, junior) year. They will receive college credit for their coursework.


To apply for fall, spring or summer semesters, dual enrolled high school students must: 

  1. Submit the dual enrollment application
  2. Complete the dual enrollment permission form

* Teacher Cadet students do not need to submit the Dual Enrollment Permission Form.

** Academic departments approve the acceptance of dual enrolled students and their enrollment in courses on a space-available basis. Since these courses carry full college credit, dual enrolled students are subject to all academic and student regulations of the College of Charleston. 


Upon acceptance, the student will receive:

  • A CofC ID number (CWID), which is needed to access MyPortal for the first time.
  • Instructions for accessing MyPortal and registering for your classes.
  • Instructions for registering for your courses.

Choosing a Course

You may choose to enroll in any course that you like as long as you meet the required pre-requisites or have permission from the academic department. You will be accepted into the course on a space-available basis.

Students may choose courses according to their interests, their schedules or the mode of instruction (online, in person, etc). 

  • Enrolled students should use the "Look Up Classes" link in the Registration Tools channel on the Academic Services tab in MyPortal. 

  • Students may continuously enroll for courses for two semesters (fall and spring or spring and fall) once admitted as dual enrollment students. If additional semesters are requested, an updated dual enrollment application will be required. Summer course registration is a separate process.

Course descriptions are available in the undergraduate catalog. In the top right corner, select the correct catalog year in the drop-down menu.
