Dual Enrollment Information

The College has suspended all on-campus activities but we are still here to help you virtually and over the phone. Faculty and Staff are working remotely to ensure that students’ needs are being met. Please contact Admissions at admissions@muskegoncc.edu for assistance.

 

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.

If you are a high school student, dual-enrolled or homeschooled, and wish to take classes you must have permission from your high school counselor, or home school teacher.
