Admission as a dual-enrolled student at CMU allows students to enrich their educational experiences and gain college credit while completing their high school degree.


  • Students can take classes at CMU that are not available in their high schools.
  • Students may take one or two college courses each semester or session.
  • CMU Admissions will work with students to enroll them in courses that meet their individual needs once they are accepted.
  • CMU accepts dual enrollment credit from other colleges.
  • Dual enrollment students may count their earned CMU credits both toward high school graduation requirements and college requirements.


In order to be accepted for dual enrollment at CMU, students must:

  • Be a high school senior. Juniors may be considered in exceptional cases.
  • Satisfy the admission requirements for new CMU freshmen - including a 3.35 or higher cumulative grade point average and a 22 ACT composite score.
  • Receive a recommendation from a high school counselor or principal.
  • Apply six months or more before the start of the class they wish to take.

How students can apply

  • Students may apply online or by mail using the regular CMU application. They may not use the Global Campus or CMU Online application.
  • If it is a student's first semester dual enrolling, they must submit the application fee or fee waiver. Returning dual enroll students can select "Pay Later" at the end of the application.
