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.

Applying

To apply for fall or spring 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. 

Acceptance

Upon acceptance, the student will receive:

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

Choosing a Course

Dual Enrollment students can register for any courses available at the College as long as they have the required pre-requisites or permission of the academic department. Academic departments approve the acceptance of dual enrolled students and their enrollment in courses on a space-available basis. 

Students may choose courses according to their interests, their schedules or the mode of instruction (on-line, in-person, etc). Since these courses carry full college credit, dual enrolled students are subject to all academic and student regulations of the College of Charleston. 

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

  • 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.
