Dual Enrollment Eligibility Requirements

Eligibility Requirements

After the 10th grade, high school students can go to college. Motlow welcomes public, private and home-schooled students to take select college classes. Some high schools may have tougher requirements than what you see here. Please check with your counselor to discover your eligibility.

NOTE: 9th and 10th graders will no longer need an IEP to be admitted to take classes. However, all 9th graders will be required to take the Accuplacer exam. 10th graders may be admitted with their high school GPA, like the juniors and seniors. Both 9th and 10th graders will remain ineligible for the Dual Enrollment Grant.
