Dual Enrollment Information

Muskegon Community College participates in the high school dual enrollment program. You will find a checklist below that will make the process easy. The Dual Enrollment Request form must be completed each semester a student is planning to register. The Dual Enrollment Addendum Form is used for adding and dropping classes after registration has occurred.

Once a dual enrolled student has graduated from high school, it will be necessary to fill out a re-admit application to MCC for admission as a traditional college student.
