Louisburg College, in cooperation with local high schools, offers Dual Enrollment for students who have completed the junior year of high school. This program is designed for students who, in the opinion of their high school principal or counselor, have the aptitude and maturity to be concurrently enrolled in high school and college.
Students considering applying for this program should take the SAT or ACT during their junior year in high school.
Students planning to enroll during the summer term immediately following completion of the junior year should submit a transcript showing work completed through the first semester of the junior year. A supplementary transcript showing their balance of high school course work should be submitted at the end of the term.
Applications will be considered on an individual basis, and a personal interview may be required. Applicants may obtain application materials and additional information from their high school counselor or from the Office of Admissions.
Specific requirements for admission are discussed below.
Applicants to this program must:
- Follow the same procedures as freshmen applicants
- Have a 3.00 average on academic work completed through the junior year
- Be recommended by their high school principal or counselor*
- Achieve a combined verbal and quantitative score of 950 on the SAT or composite score of 19 on the ACT (with a verbal score of not less than 480 and eligibility for college level mathematics courses)
- Secure written parental/guardian consent to participate in the program
- Be on track to complete the college preparatory curriculum as outlined earlier in the admissions requirements
* The principal or counselor recommending the student should submit appropriate course recommendations and a copy of the student’s high school transcript to the Office of Admissions.
The College grants full credit for college level courses completed under these programs, but high school officials may or may not accept the credits to meet graduation requirements. Students should consult their principal and/or counselor to determine the courses which satisfy those requirements.
