Phoenix College partners with Valley high schools to offer dual enrollment credit for academic and occupational classes. Dual enrollment courses are held on high school campuses and are taught by high school instructors who have met community college hiring qualifications. Through dual enrollment we strive to ease the transition from high school to college and to increase the number of college-bound high school students in our community.
1. Apply for Admission
Get a jumpstart on the application process by setting up a student account at my.maricopa.edu. Next, log in to your student account and apply for admission at each college from which you plan to take dual enrollment courses. You can download the steps for Applying for Admission Online. In order to be eligible for in-state tuition, send each college a document that shows your citizenship or legal residency.
Students taking math or English courses need to pass college placement tests in order to register. See Maricopa Placement Scores for passing scores in each area. Student enrolling in other academic courses (for example, physics, history, Spanish) must meet one of the following:
*Composite score of 93 or more on the PSAT
*Composite score of 930 or more on the SAT
*Composite score of 22 or more on the ACT
*Passing score on the relevant portions of AIMS
*Completion of a college placement test
Students enrolling in vocational (Career and Technical Education) courses do not need to take placement tests. Download our testing requirements for more information.
3. Register for Classes
See which courses are available at your high school. Print and complete a Dual Enrollment Registration Form and submit it to Phoenix College. Include your unofficial high school transcripts, test scores, and - if you have not already submitted it - a document that shows your citizenship or legal residency. Students are welcome to submit registration materials at any of Phoenix College's on-site registrations.
4. Pay Tuition
Tuition for in-state residents at the Maricopa Community Colleges is $81 per credit hour plus a $15 registration fee per semester, per college. Many high school districts pay a portion of this tuition for in-state students, making dual enrollment even more affordable for students. Check with your high school about dual enrollment rates. Dual enrollment grants are also available for qualified students. Grant applications are due on Friday, August 30, 2013.
