Dual Enrollment

In an effort to meet student needs and interests, school districts have allowed students to attend courses at local colleges or universities in addition to course at high school. Effective April 1, 1996, Public Act 160 created the Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act which directs school districts to assist students who meet all the necessary qualifications, in paying tuition and fees for courses at Michigan public or private colleges or universities.


The spirit of Postsecondary Options or Dual Enrollment‖ is that the dual enrollment course is an extension of the high school's curriculum, not a lateral supplement. Every effort will be made to fill a student’s schedule with appropriate courses from the Oxford Bridges High School curriculum before considering other postsecondary options.  See your Counselor if interested in Dual Enrollment opportunities.


To qualify, all the following conditions must be met:


1. Students must have qualifying scores on the following tests: SAT, PSAT, PLAN, ACT or other to be determined college placement assessment.   2. Students must be enrolled in both the school district and postsecondary institution during the local school district’s regular academic year and must be enrolled in at least one high school class.  3. The college courses must NOT be offered by the district.  An exception to this could occur if the Board of Education determines that a scheduling conflict exists which is beyond the student’s control. 4. The college courses cannot be hobby, craft, or recreation courses, nor can they be courses in physical education, theology, divinity, or religious education. 5. Proof of registration in college courses must be provided to the high school counselor before the first day of high school classes each semester.  Otherwise, the student will be enrolled in 7 courses at the high school, and the district will not pay any college tuition or fees for that semester.
