The LSU Dual Enrollment Program allows high schools an opportunity to advance their students’ academic careers by earning college credit while still attending high school. All LSU dual enrollment (DE) courses are created and administered by an LSU faculty member assigned as the LSU Instructor of Record. The Instructor of Record monitors all student and teacher activity and provides the needed course materials.
- High schools are able to offer courses with enriched materials from college courses.
- High schools benefit from having their teachers receive free professional development from specific LSU departments.
- High schools are able to better prepare their students to be college-ready by exposing students to college material in the nurturing high school environment.
- The high school must sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with LSU to offer DE courses at their high schools.
- The high school must provide a teacher in the classroom who has completed the required LSU certification training for the specific course to be offered.
- The high school must insure that DE teachers adhere to all University and Department rules and policies regarding the DE courses.
- The high school must provide classroom space along with any required technology.
- The high school must follow all requirements stated on the MoU.
In the 2017-18 academic year, 43 high schools are partnering with LSU to offer DE courses, see the full list of participating high schools. For more information on how to offer DE courses at your school visit "Getting Started."
