Dual Enrollment Program Policies
Review our Dual Enrollment policies below for important information about the program. For more details, visit our Student Handbook.
- Dual Enrollment students are enrolled through Liberty University Online Academy and are only allowed to take select courses approved by Liberty University Online Academy.
- Not all Dual Enrollment courses are available to students in all tracks. Please review the Degree Completion Plan, Certificate Completion Plan, and/or contact us to find out what courses are eligible for each track.
- Students who pursue an associate degree may only take Dual Enrollment courses that are on their Degree Completion Plan.
- Students who pursue a certificate program or customize their own path may take a maximum of 36 credits.
- Prior to enrolling in math or English courses, students may need to take the Math Assessment and/or English Assessment. These tests help us determine the best course placement for student success.
When to Begin
- Students cannot enroll for Dual Enrollment courses after the Spring D subterm of their 12th grade.
- Students must begin an associate degree track or change their associate degree track no later than the Spring B term of their 11th grade.
Failing/Retaking a Course
- Students who fail a Dual Enrollment credit course may repeat the course 1 time. However, the student must pay the tuition for the repeated course. The original and second attempt grades are listed on the LUOA high school transcript and factored into the student’s overall LUOA GPA.
- Students who receive a failing grade or are administratively withdrawn from any 2 Dual Enrollment courses at any time are no longer eligible for the Dual Enrollment program. The student may continue to enroll in LUOA high school courses.
Completion and Graduation
- Students must take courses specific to completion of the high school diploma as a first priority.
- Each associate degree track has a certain number of high school courses that must be completed in order to be eligible to begin the program.
- Students must earn all college credits through LUOA’s Dual Enrollment program. Outside credits (such as through CLEP or another institution) must be approved by the administration (max of 2 courses).
- Students who complete Dual Enrollment while enrolled full time in high school with LUOA will receive a high school diploma upon completion of their high school curriculum.
- Once a student earns a high school diploma, General Equivalency Development certificate (GED), or other high school graduation certificate, they will no longer be able to enroll in LUOA Dual Enrollment classes. Instead, they will need to apply to a college degree program (residential or online).
- The associate degree and certificate tracks are for full-time students only. Students who are customizing their own path may enroll part time or full time.
- Financial Aid is not available for Dual Enrollment students.
