Policy Provisions

Dual Enrollment

1. Any qualified high school Junior or Senior may apply to Cumberland University for dual enrollment.

2. Applicants must officially apply to the University and pay the undergraduate application fee.

3. Applicants must provide an official copy of their current high school transcript.

4. Applicants must meet the University’s current admission standards with regards to GPA.

5. Applicants must meet all University application and fee deadlines.

6. Students accepted to the program may earn a maximum of 24 credit hours through dual enrollment. Fees for 6 hours per term of credit will be assessed at the current Dual Enrollment Grant (Hope Scholarship) rate.

7. Fees for additional credit hours (above 6 per term) will be assessed at the current Cumberland University hourly tuition rate.

8. Dual enrollment students on Cumberland University’s campus will participate in regularly scheduled Cumberland University course sections.

9. As space permits, accepted dual enrollment students are eligible to enroll into any 100 or 200 level course for which prerequisites have been met.

10. Dual enrollment students will register after priority registration or with incoming freshmen.

11. Grades posted on high school transcripts may be weighted and therefore differ from the grade on the students Cumberland University transcript. Cumberland grades will not be changed to match the high school transcript.

12. Appeals to this policy may be submitted to the Vice President for Academic Affairs.

EXCEPTION: Freshmen and Sophomore high school students wishing to apply to Cumberland University for dual enrollment must demonstrate a level of academic achievement and knowledge comparable to the University’s standard admission policy. If minimum GPA and standardized test scores for admission rise, so will the minimum requirements for dual enrollment.

a. High school freshmen and sophomores must provide a documented ACT cumulative score of 22 with no sub-score lower than 20.

b. High school GPA will not be considered since it is difficult to evaluate, and the body of course work for these students is limited.
