Dual Enrollment

Dual Enrollment

The Dual Enrollment program is designed to provide college credit opportunities to junior and senior high school students in Mercer County and surrounding areas (students in grades lower than junior status will be considered on an individual basis). Dual Enrollment offers the credits specifically in the core academic areas of English, Mathematics, History, Art, Foreign Language, Science, Psychology and Sociology.

Students have the option of enrolling in college courses on Thiel’s campus upon meeting the following criteria:

  • Approval from high school guidance counselor (students' individual school has their own criteria for qualifying to take college courses)
  • Approval from parent and/or guardian
  • Dual credit may be available, but is awarded at the discretion of the student's own high school
  • Students' high school must have a signed agreement as a Dual Enrollment participating high school (Dual Enrollment Only)

Dual Enrollment students are part-time students and receive most of the benefits of part-time enrollment, including full privileges at the Thiel Library, use of campus computer labs, and student admission to various events. Dual Enrollment students may participate in all on campus college events except varsity sports and Greek life. An on-campus orientation is provided before courses begin.
