Dual Credit Courses at ACU
ACU offers the opportunity for students to take courses which can apply both as college credit and toward fulfilling high school requirements. Any course at ACU may be taken as dual credit provided the student meets all prerequisite requirements for the course. Prerequisite requirements for courses can be found in the Course Description section of the catalog.

These courses are offered to high school students at greatly reduced rates. The rate for the 2012-13 academic year is $90 per credit hour. Individual course fees may also apply. Students will also be responsible for purchasing an ACU Parking Pass at a cost of $25 (for on campus courses only) and will be responsible for any books for each course taken. Cost for books varies greatly by course. No other discounts or scholarships, such as the Faculty-Employee Discount, will apply to these hours.
Requirements and Application
To apply for dual credit courses at ACU, a student will need:
- to have completed sophomore year in high school, but have not yet completed all high school requirements.
- to complete a Dual Credit Application.
- to have a letter or email from an official at the student's school, certifying that these courses will count to complete high school requirements; letters may be faxed to 325-674-6850 or emailed to email@example.com from a valid high school email address.
- a valid ACT or SAT score; Learn how to have your score sent to ACU. If an ACT or SAT score is not available, a student may take a placement test.
- to adhere to ACU's Immunization Policy.
Students enrolling in dual credit at ACU will be registered after current ACU students have registered for classes. Typically, this means that students will be registered in late April for the fall term and in mid November for the spring term. Where ACU classes are full, no dual credit students will be allowed to register for those courses without special permission of the department and professor. Students seeking to take upper level courses at ACU will also need special permission of the instructor and professor of the class.
