High School Student Enrollment

Dual Credit and Concurrent Enrollment is available to high school students.

Dual Credit

  • Dual Credit provides high school juniors and seniors who attend a public high school (with whom NMJC has a Dual Credit agreement) the opportunity to take college courses for which they will simultaneously earn both college credit and high school credit. Students should see their high school counselor for Dual Credit information.

Concurrent Enrollment

  • Concurrent Enrollment provides high school juniors and seniors who attend a private or a public high school or are currently home-schooled students and at least 16 years of age, the opportunity to take college courses. Students seeking concurrent enrollment must see the Dean of Enrollment Management.
  • The student and parent must complete a Concurrent Consent Form.

Be advised that college classes are designed for adults and may not be appropriate for some high school-aged students.
