Looking toward the future

College to host Dual Enrollment Night for incoming students

By Christorpher Skarnulis, Staff Writer

Each semester, Schoolcraft’s Admission Center sponsors a Dual Enrollment Information Night for incoming students. This event gives future Ocelots an opportunity to learn more details regarding the dual enrollment program offered through Schoolcraft.
Dual Enrollment is a program that allows students that are currently enrolled in public high school, approved nonpublic school, or qualifying home school to use funding from their K–12 district or Department of Treasury to pay for classes taken at Schoolcraft during the Fall, Winter or Spring semesters.
The Dual Enrollment Information Night will feature a presentation by members of Schoolcraft’s Admissions staff in addition to counselors being in attendance. The staff will offer information and resources on the program. Instruction on the application process will be explained in detail as well as other accommodations.
If applicable, the first step to getting enrolled is to meet with a high school counselor. Meet with the counselor to develop an educational plan and determine one’s eligibility under the public Postsecondary Enrollment Act. Discuss enrollment eligibility, course selection and any available funding for tuition, fees and materials including books. Students not eligible for funding under the Postsecondary Enrollment Act may choose to dual enroll, but students/parents would be responsible for payment.
The next step is to complete the High School Dual Enrollment Application and obtain all of the required signatures (parent, counselors and principal). The third step is to submit the high school dual enrollment application to the Admissions and Welcome Center.
The final step is to register for classes for the upcoming semester. Registration can be done through the campus’ online Webadvisor site at webadvisor.schoolcraft.edu.
The Director of Admissions Lisa Bushaw believes students that qualify for the program will benefit from attending this informative event. They will have a better understanding of the program.
“Students that qualify for the Dual Enrollment program can take advantage of this event by learning more about what we offer. Our services are stellar, and are likely to meet the standards of the students. It will be great to further inform people of this program,” said Bushaw.
All information can be attained by attending this event on Tuesday, Feb. 7 from 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in Kehrl Auditorium in the VisTaTech Center. For further information, contact the Admissions office by phone at (734)-462-4683 or email at [email protected]
