Dual Enrollment FAQ
Dual Enrollment classes are those qualify for both high school and college credit at the same time. Concurrent Enrollment is a type of dual enrollment that is taught in the high school during standard school hours but qualifies for college credit for students that choose to opt in.
Students must first be enrolled in the course through the high school and then complete application/registration paperwork for the dual enrollment program. Pre-requisites and/or placement/standardized test scores may be required. All dual enrollment students must complete enrollments by applicable deadlines to be enrolled. These dates change each semester and are available from the dual enrollment coordinator.
We process Fall course enrollments at the beginning of the school year, or between mid August and early September. Spring course enrollments are processed in November/December, before students leave for Christmas break. Yearlong classes are always enrolled as spring semester credit bearing classes. See the list below for your school to determine when your enrollment occurs. We do allow a few late enrollments for extenuating circumstances but must officially meet MSU Bozeman's Admission's Office application deadline which is the 5th class day of each semester on the university academic calendar. Contact the dual enrollment coordinator if you want to opt in for dual credit.
Effective fall 2018 under a two year pilot, the Montana University System's One-Two-Free initiative will waive tuition for up to six credits - typically, two courses - of dual enrollment. Students who plan to earn additional credit beyond this allowance still pay only half of the Gallatin College tuition rate, with no university fees. Specifically, this amounts to just under $55 per credit, or about $165 for a three credit class.
Below are the current lists of courses taught in the high school for college credit through Gallatin College MSU. We are constantly working with our high school partners to add new courses and schools.
Motivated junior and seniors in high school can take 100 or 200 level college classes at Gallatin College MSU and still take advantage of the significantly discounted or free tuition rate. Note: On campus, Early College course enrollment is offered only when space is available in sections after continuing and degree seeking Gallatin College/MSU students have completed priority registration and if applicable course pre-requisites are met. Check out the course catalog for Gallatin College and select the appropriate semester and subject area. If you find a course you are interested in, contact our dual enrollment coordinator.
Note: Some courses may be available for college credit only (not dual enrollment), may have additional course fees, and may require the purchase of textbook and/or other course materials.
