Because of the rigor of Cedarville’s courses, both Dual Enrollment and undergraduate students must demonstrate proficiency in the areas of mathematics and English. Students may satisfy the mathematics proficiency by scoring 19 or higher on the math section of the ACT or by scoring 500 or higher on the math section of the SAT. Students may satisfy the English proficiency by scoring 21 or higher on the English section of the ACT or by scoring 500 or higher on the Critical Reading section of the SAT. Dual Enrollment students who have PSAT scores but who have not yet taken the ACT or SAT may register for courses other than math or English until they submit either ACT or SAT scores that demonstrate proficiency. 

For most courses your computer must meet these basic and minimum requirements. Some courses require an additional software purchase that must be installed and tested prior to the start of class. Individual course syllabi will specify any additional requirements. You must also have access to high-speed Internet.

For courses that have a lab component (e.g., Principles of Earth Science), you will receive a lab kit or virtual lab package. Then you will individually perform the lab and submit the results.

DE students are eligible to take courses until they have completed their fourth year of high school or reached the graduation date given in the initial application, whichever is earlier. Eligibility for Dual Enrollment pricing expires at graduation from high school, as established at the time of admission as a Dual Enrollment student. Fifth-year high school students are not eligible for Dual Enrollment pricing.

Before dropping courses, consult with both the Dual Enrollment coordinator and with your high school guidance counselor, carefully considering the impact on both high school and college graduation requirements. Students should refer to the "Academic Information" section of the online catalog for important deadlines and requirements related to dropping a course. To initiate the process of dropping a course, contact the coordinator for Dual Enrollment.
