Policy for Dual Enrollment Students

Maryville College welcomes qualified area high school juniors and seniors to take college level courses on a space available basis. Students are considered for admission as Dual Enrollment students if they have a minimum 3.0 grade point average or a minimum ACT of 21 (SAT of 930.) Students must reapply for each term they wish to enroll as dual enrollment students at Maryville College. Continuation in the program is at the discretion of the College. Even if a high school student meets all academic criteria to be admitted into the dual enrollment program, Maryville College will only place high school students in college classes if space is available. With limited space in many introductory level courses, priority will always be given to current full time Maryville College students over dual enrollment applicants.

Dual Enrollment students may not enroll in the following courses:

ENG 110               Composition and Speech I
ENG 120               Composition and Speech II
ENG 108                Fundamentals of College Writing
ENG 150                Oral Rhetoric
MTH 110               Quantitative Literacy
STA 120                 Introductory Statistics


The deadline for submitting completed Dual Enrollment applications for the fall term is April 1 and October 1 for the spring term. Before a student’s dual enrollment application can be considered, the applicant must send the following:

  • completed application including course preference
  • updated high school transcript or ACT/SAT scores
  • permission form signed by the high school principal or school counselor

A student may apply for the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC) Dual Enrollment Grant at the following site:

The College will provide a scholarship that is equal to the difference between Tennessee’s Dual Enrollment Grant and the tuition of the Maryville College course.

Notification and confirmation of class placement will occur no earlier than August 15 for the fall term or January 15 for the spring term. Students wishing to change their scheduled class after this time may encounter difficulties due to limited or no seats remaining.  Dual Enrollment students are limited to no more than 4 credit hours per semester. The College reserves the right to cancel classes due to low enrollment or other unforeseen circumstances. In such cases, the College will make every effort to place affected students in an appropriate alternative course and will notify them immediately.

This program provides opportunities for students to begin working toward a college degree, while still pursuing a high school diploma, and encourages post-secondary education and the acceleration of post-secondary attainment. This policy may change without notice.
