Dual Enrollment FAQs
What if my child has an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 plan at their high school?
Tyler provides reasonable accommodations to afford students with disabilities an equal opportunity to participate in the College’s programs, courses, and activities. Dual enrollment students with disabilities who require accommodations must disclose their need for accommodations to Disability Support Services (DSS) and follow DSS procedures to establish and use accommodations.
Is financial aid available for dual enrollment students?
No. According to federal guidelines, dual enrolled students are not eligible for financial aid administered by the College.
Can I transfer my credits to a four-year college or university?
Dual enrolled courses can often be included when student transfers to a senior institution using Tyler’s SCHEV Transfer Tool. However, some courses are not designed to transfer. Colleges and universities have specific policies regarding acceptance of transfer credits. Students should contact the college or university you are considering to discuss the transferability of dual enrollment courses, or talk with a Tyler advisor for more information.
Can I participate in Dual Enrollment as a freshman or sophomore?
Dual enrollment is restricted to high school juniors and seniors who meet all admissions requirements and submit application materials by the deadline. On a case by case basis, exceptions can be granted to highly qualified rising sophomore students who are considered both academically and socially ready to enroll in college courses. In order to qualify for Early Entry, students must have a) grades of ‘A’ or ‘B’ in all high school courses, b) a letter of recommendation from a teacher or school counselor, c) qualifying scores on the Math and English VPT. Please speak with your school counselor about your eligibility.
