Academic Pathways for Dual Enrollment Students

High school dual enrollment students have the opportunity to get a head start on their four-year degree by taking courses that will satisfy some of the requirements of their major program of study in college while also earning high school credit for the college courses. Each of the eight pathways below is designed to guide students toward completing requirements in their possible intended major. A bonus for APSU dual enrollment students is that you pay no student fees for taking dual enrollment courses!
