Student requirements

Students who wish to take a dual credit course must meet UWL admission requirements:

  • Junior or senior at time of course
  • High school seniors must rank in the upper 25% of their class; OR achieve a composite score of 26 or greater on the ACT exam
  • High school juniors must rank in the upper 10% of their class.
  • Successful completion of appropriate preparatory high school course work for college courses
  • Completion of required application documents by required deadlines including appropriate test scores.

"What do I need to do?"

  • Ask your guidance counselor if there are UWL dual credit opportunities at your school and if you are eligible to participate.
  • If yes, talk to your family about your interest in dual credit (DC). Ask your guidance counselor to help you complete the application materials required to enroll in this program.
  • If no, please contact Annette Valeo, to find out about other potential opportunities.
  • Submit all required documents and scores to UWL by the deadlines provided by your counselor.

It is the student's responsibility to verify that a specific dual credit course will transfer to the university or college to which the student applies. The transfer wizard can help you.

UWL grants High School students enrolled in this program the same academic rights and privileges granted to other UWL students. Dual credit students do not pay segregated fees; however, so most on campus services provided by these fees are not available to them.

High school students enrolled in dual credit courses may be granted a library card to use the university library and may use the equipment in dual credit courses for which there is a lab component.
