Dual Enrollment

Our Dual Enrollment/Concurrent Enrollment Programs offer you the opportunity to:

  • Earn both high school and college credit.
  • Experience college academic expectations early.
  • Meet high school graduation requirements by taking college courses.
  • Finish college sooner.
  • Create the educational program best for you!

Most public schools pay for their students to attend GRCC through the Dual Enrollment/Concurrent Enrollment Programs. However, any tuition and fees not covered by the high school are the responsibility of the student/family. For non-public students, the State of Michigan determines what dollar amount it will pay per course. Any tuition and fees not covered by the State of Michigan is the responsibility of the student/family.  Homeschool students are responsible for their own tuition and fees.

Tuition (in district and out of district) is based on the permanent residence of the student. Refer to our Tuition Rates and Fees for more information.

All credits earned through dual enrollment classes will be part of your official GRCC college transcript.
