The Union University High School Dual Enrollment program is open to exceptional high school juniors and seniors from partnering institutions who have the ability, motivation, and maturity to begin their college education before high school graduation.
In addition to getting a taste of the quality of a Union University education, investing in this great opportunity provides some real practical advantages:
Students desiring to enroll in the Union University dual enrollment program must do so through Union University's Office of Undergraduate Admissions and meet the admission criteria as outlined in the formalized agreement with the partnering institution.
The dual enrollment form should be submitted at your school to your Guidance Counselor or your school's Dual Enrollment Program Coordinator.
What do I need to do if I want to attend Union University when I graduate?
The Union University Office of Undergraduate Admissions will be happy to help! Students would need to submit the Application for Undergraduate Admissions and Scholarship Assistance. Additional items (transcript, test scores, etc.), would also be required; for more information, contact your enrollment counselor at 1-800-33-UNION.
Who teaches dual enrollment courses?
Union University provides Christ-centered higher education that promotes excellence and character development in service to Church and society. To this end, the University maintains a firm policy of employing only faculty and professional staff who share these commitments to academic quality and to a Christian life-style. All instructors affiliated with Union University must meet these criteria. High school teachers who meet the adjunct faculty criteria standards may teach dual enrollment courses.
Are dual enrollment courses different from other similar courses offered on Union University's campus?
Dual enrollment courses meet the same academic standards as courses taught at Union University.
Do dual enrollment courses transfer to other institutions?
In most cases, Union's courses transfer to other institutions, but it is ultimately the decision of the registrar at the institution to which courses would be transferred. It is the student's responsibility to contact the college or university she or he plans to attend to ensure that the courses would be accepted. The official Union University transcript is used for this purpose, not the high school transcript. Learn more about ordering transcripts online through the Office of the Registrar's website.
Is there a limit to the number of hours of Dual Enrollment courses that I am permitted to take?
Students may complete a maximum of 24 semester hours through Union's reduced tuition programs. Please see Union's catalog for more details (www.uu.edu/catalog).
What is the cost of tuition for a dual enrollment course?
Tuition is $130 per credit hour. Most courses are 3 hour credits, but course credit may vary. Payment for dual enrollment courses will be handled at your school through your Guidance Office or your school's Dual Enrollment Program Coordinator. If you are a Tennessee resident, you may qualify for the TN Dual Enrollment Grant.
