Precollege/Dual Enrollment Program

This page is for Precollege and Dual Enrollment. For information about Dual Credit visit Missouri State University Dual Credit.

Are you a high school junior or senior who would like to get a head start on college? Our Precollege Program provides high achieving high school students the opportunity to take college courses on our campus before graduation. Some of the benefits of the Precollege Program include:

  • Receiving college credit while still in high school
  • Getting acquainted with being on a college campus
  • Making connections with college students, faculty, and staff
  • The opportunity to take courses in subjects not available in some high schools

What are the requirements?

Students must have completed their sophomore year of high school, have at least a 3.00 cumulative grade point average on a 4.00 scale, and have an ACT composite score of 21 or higher (or an equivalent score on the PLAN or SAT). Students must have written permission from a parent/guardian and written permission from a high school official (i.e., superintendent, principal, assistant principal, or counselor). Course selection(s) must be approved by the student's designated academic advisor.

When should I apply?

Priority deadline for your application for Summer and Fall 2022 is Thursday, April 14th, 2022 (Precollege students register on April 22). If you turn in your application after this date, you cannot be guaranteed to enroll in your preferred course selection. Students will not be able to submit applications after classes have started.

How much do my classes cost?

There is no discount for Precollege courses. All courses are subject to Missouri State University tuition and student fees. Read about tuition, costs, and fees for more information. In addition, billing is done through the student's My Missouri State account and may be paid by cash or check at the Bursar's Office.

What are possible courses that I could take?

You can take any course from the catalog that you have met the prerequisites for. Our online catalog is available to use. Many Precollege students will take courses from our General Education program. You can access a General Education Worksheet, and your advisor can also help you with what courses to take. You can also view days and times for classes using our Class Schedule Search.
