Benefits of Dual Enrollment

As a dual enrolled high school student, you’ll experience college life ahead of your peers. You’ll know what will be expected of you in a college classroom and the level of coursework you’ll receive. The credit you receive will transfer directly into your degree program when you become a student. Some dual enrollment students are able to graduate early with less student debt.

Dual Enrollment vs. Dual Credit

Before you jump into your dual enrollment application, it’s important to know there is a difference between dual enrollment and dual credit. Dual enrollment is earning college credit while you are still enrolled in high school.

If you are interested in having your Cornerstone course credits apply to your high school credit requirements, please contact your high school.

Requesting CU Transcripts

You can place an order for your transcripts directly through the Registrar’s Office.

FERPA Policies

In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 as amended, it is necessary for Cornerstone University officials to obtain written consent from a student prior to releasing information from the student’s financial record to most sources outside the university. FERPA policy also allows the release of directory information.
