High School Students
Concurrent and Dual Enrollment
The College at Southeastern offers two ways for high school students to receive college credit during their junior and senior years. These options will allow incoming college freshmen to start their college experience with credit hours already applied towards their degree.
The Concurrent Enrollment Program at Southeastern provides high school students the opportunity to take classes for college-credit taught by college-approved high school teachers. Students gain exposure to the academic challenges of college while remaining in their supportive high school environment. Each successfully passed course earns the student transcripted college credit. Concurrent enrollment partnerships differ from other models of dual enrollment because high school instructors teach the college courses. Concurrent enrollment classes will be taken on the campus of partnering high schools with high school teachers.
Please note that the application process for Concurrent Enrollment is different than our regular application process.

The Dual Enrollment Program is offered to juniors and seniors in high school. These students can be in either a public school, private school or homeschool setting. The purpose of the Dual Enrollment Program is to offer high school and college credits for the enrolled student. Thus, the student upon completing college classes will receive both high school and college credits. Some courses are even available to take online, making college credit more accessible than ever.
Some of the application requirements necessitate that the applicant be currently enrolled in a high school, have an outstanding high school record and show proof of completion of the 10th grade. In addition, he/she must be at least 16 years of age. Students who are juniors and are admitted into the program may complete 3 credit hours per semester and enrolled seniors may complete up to 6 credit hours per semester.
If the student is in the public school system, he/she is asked to first meet with the school’s guidance counselor for more information about the Dual Enrollment Program. In addition, it would greatly benefit the high school or homeschooled student to contact the Admissions Office at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary as to which classes are available for dual credit.
All courses are fully accredited by SACSCOC and transferable. It is advised to first check with the desired college for course transferability. Any courses taken with The College at Southeastern can be applied to any undergraduate degree at the college with no penalty or upcharge in tuition fees.
There are two ways to become a dually enrolled student: 1) fill out a credit-only application and take any core class available through our undergraduate program; 2) fill out a dual enrollment application and take specifically designed Dual Enrollment courses.
If you choose to apply as an undergraduate credit only student, you are eligible to take any core course offering in a semester. These courses are billed at the current undergraduate tuition rate per hour. So, as of Fall 2016 these courses would be offered at a rate of $316 per credit hour for 3 hours plus the student enrollment fee ($316 x 3 = $948 class tuition plus $270 student enrollment fee= total cost $1,218). Using this application process will allow the student to follow normal institutional orientation and registration policies.
If you register for the specially designed Dual Enrollment courses, you will take a special selection of classes at a reduced rate of $250 per course. The rotation of classes for Fall 2016 and Spring 2017 are listed below. By using this application, you will indicate which course you wish to take for dual enrollment and will be manually enrolled for the course(s). Click the links above or to the left to apply.

The student can also take College Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests to receive college credit. Credit will be awarded to students earning a minimum qualifying score equivalent to a grade of C in accordance with the “Credit-Granting Recommendations” on the College Board website for specific classes following CLEP examinations (see College at Southeastern’s online catalogue for details).
