Dual Enrollment

HFC is a participant in the Dual Enrollment Program, which allows high school students to take college courses. This program allows eligible students at participating high schools the opportunity to take approved HFC courses for college credit(s) and have tuition covered by their high school.

Students must submit a special Dual Enrollment application for each semester in which they plan to enroll in both HFC courses and high school courses. The application for admission is available on the HFC website. The directions to apply for admission are under the “Apply for Dual Enrollment” section below. Dual Enrollment students desiring placement in Mathematics, Chemistry or English courses are required to take the appropriate placement tests.

Eligibility

Interested students should contact their high school counseling office to discuss opportunities regarding Dual Enrollment/Advancement Plus.

If a student is not eligible for Dual Enrollment, he or she can enroll at HFC through Advancement Plus. Advancement Plus is a program in which public, private, or home-schooled students may take college courses that are paid for by the student’s parent(s)/guardian(s).

DEO will also cover the services available to them on the HFC campus.

Dearborn Public School students will be able to attend an orientation session scheduled at their high school during the school day. All other students will be able to attend a session on the HFC campus.
