Attached is LSA's new policy on Dual Enrollment and a FAQ document for your information.

As you may know the State of Michigan mandated that all public universities, effective January 3, 2013, must award credit for college-level courses taken by high school students. President Coleman signed the following statement: 

The University certifies that, by January 3, 2013, it will not consider whether dual enrollment credits earned by an incoming student were utilized towards his or her high school graduation requirements when making a determination as to whether those credits may be used by the student toward completion of a university degree or certificate program.

Starting with incoming students in Spring 2013, under this new policy LSA will allow dual enrollment credits to count towards LSA requirements and degrees. Admissions will post dual enrollment credit as transfer credit and they will apply to requirements appropriately.

Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
