Dual Enrollment Information

 

Dual enrollment classes are courses that allow students to earn both high school and college credit for. 

 

RHS students can now choose between Northeast Community College or Blue Mountain College

 

  • If a student plans to attend Northeast after graduation, this is the best option for them!
    • Upon completion at Northeast they will cancel the complete deferred amount, leaving the student with no costs.
    • Students complete a deferment form along with their application

 

  • If a student plants to attend a different college, Blue Mountain College may be the less expensive option! 
    • The total cost at Blue Mountain would depend on how many students sign up for the class. The price decreases as the class size increases.
    • Classes must have at least six students 
      • If less than six request the course it won't be available at BMC.

 

Additional Information

  • ACT Subscores are required for some classes
    • English Comp 1 & 2 require an English subscore of 17 or higher
    • College Algebra requires a math subscore of 19 or higher
    • General Biology and Chemistry require a science subscore of 19 or higher
    • Elective classes such as Art Appreciation, Music Appreciation, or Psychology have no subscore requirements - student simply have to have taken the act before.

 

  • South Tippah School District issues a scholarship up to $150 per student taking a dual enrollment course. This allows them to have less expenses on their first course.

 

  • RHS requires that students turn in their applications along with a $30 fee that goes directly to the college they choose for dual enrollment.
