Dual and Accelerated Enrollment Admission Requirements

All credit for course work completed under these provisions is held in escrow until the student provides proof of high school graduation. Transcripts issued prior to a student’s high school graduation will be labeled “conditional credit.” Upon proof of high school graduation, this notation will be removed from the transcript.

Dual Enrollment Admission Requirements

Eligible high school students may enroll in college classes concurrently with high school classes, either on the College campus or at the high school, and receive both high school and college credit. There must be a formal written agreement between the student’s local school board and Bevill State Community College on file before approval for Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment admission is granted. To be eligible the student must meet the following requirements:

  1. The student must be in grade 10, 11, or 12. An exception may be granted by the Chancellor for students documented as gifted and talented in accordance with Alabama Administrative Code 290-8-9.17.
  2. The student must have a 2.5 unweighted GPA, as defined by local board of education policy, in completed high school courses.
  3. The student must have approval of the appropriate principal, counselor, or the local superintendent of education. Student access to Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment is dependent upon both academic readiness and social maturity. Approval from the appropriate counselor, principal or superintendent indicates that the student has demonstrated both. Unless the student can demonstrate the ability to benefit from college level instruction, special education students are not eligible for enrollment under this policy.
  4. Students who are enrolled in grades 10, 11, or 12 may be deemed eligible to participate in Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment in occupational/technical courses pending demonstrated ability to benefit as documented by successful completion of placement test or other assessments approved by the Department of Alabama Community College System
  5. The student must take placement test and place in eligible courses.

A student is eligible for early admission upon meeting the following criteria:

  1. The student has successfully completed the 10th grade and provides a certification from the local principal and/or designee certifying that the student has a minimum cumulative 3.0 average and recommending the student be admitted under this policy. An exception may be granted by the Chancellor for students documented as gifted and talented in accordance with Alabama Administrative Code 290-8-9.17
  2. The student must have approval of the appropriate principal, counselor, or the local superintendent of education. Student access to Accelerated Credit is dependent upon both academic readiness and social maturity.

Unless the student can demonstrate the ability to benefit from college level instruction, special education students are not eligible for enrollment under this policy.
  3. The student may enroll only in postsecondary courses for which high school prerequisites have been completed (e.g., a student may not take English Composition until all required high school English courses have been completed). The student must take placement test and place in eligible courses.
  4. The student must meet admission requirements established by the College.
