Dual Enrollment and CTE Classes
Dual Enrollment Courses are available to Hamilton Students. Hamilton Schools will pay a portion or all of your college class depending on the cost of class and the college you chose. Courses that are remedial, a hobby, craft, recreational, or a course that is in the areas of physical education, theology, divinity, or religious education, are not eligible for tuition support. The district will pay a predetermined amount towards the college class and books. If books are purchased, they need to be turned in at the end of the semester. Some colleges greatly exceed the allowable amount and some colleges reduce their dual enrollment rates, so Hamilton can pay for the entire class and books. Feel free to call Kristie to talk about the many options. Follow the links below for more information. To take advantage of the dual enrollment program, you must take a minimum of 1 class from Hamilton. That class can be a class on campus, PBL class, or online class.
- If your student fails or drops out of the dual enrollment class, you will be responsible for all costs of the class.
- All dual enrollment classes must be semester length and meet during the count period for each semester.
- Online college courses are acceptable as long as the college is located in the State of Michigan and the college participates in Dual Enrollment.
- If the class is 4 or 5 credits, it will count as 2 classes on your student's schedule.
