Huntsville City Schools Dual Enrollment and Early Start/College Program

The Dual Enrollment program for Huntsville City Schools allows students to receive both high school and college credit for certain academic or career technical education courses. Eligible courses can be taken through an Alabama Community College System (ACCS) institution while enrolled in high school for the purpose of earning credits for a high school diploma and/or a postsecondary degree. 

Based on state eligibility guidelines and the joint consent order with the Department of Justice, Huntsville City Schools has developed criteria for students wanting to participate in the Dual Enrollment program.

  1. The student has and maintains a 2.5 GPA (GPA requirements may vary depending on program of interest) in completed high school courses;
  2. The postsecondary level course is a course not offered at the high school;
  3. The student is a current 10th, 11th, or 12th grader;
  4. The student has met with his or her High School Counselor and the College Dual Enrollment Advisor.
