Home » Dual Enrollment Program
Northwestern State University, in partnership with participating high schools, is pleased to offer courses for college credit for selected high school students. In an effort to provide a unique opportunity, 11th and 12th grade students may earn college credit while enrolled in courses taught by their high school teacher. Students may also enroll in on-line courses directly through Northwestern or in traditional courses on Northwestern's campus.
By participating in the program, students are getting a head start on their collegiate career while completing high school. This can reduce the amount of time spent in college, as well as the cost. Also, as an admitted Northwestern student, access to university services such as the University Library is available.
Many scholarships, like TOPS, are only awarded for four years, although students may require more than four years to complete their undergraduate program. By completing a semester's work in high school, students increase the likelihood of finishing college while still under scholarship.
