  • What is the basic process?

    Posted by:

    Students will need to first apply to the college online.  After applying, additional paperwork may be obtained in the guidance office.  This paperwork will be returned to your child's guidance counselor, and he or she will complete the process for your child.  We can obtain copies of each student's transcript to submit along with their ACT score if it is on file with us.  They only need to return the signed forms and bring a form of a current picture ID--license, passport, etc.  If you child has not taken the ACT or if it is not on file with us, you will need to bring a copy of that as well.  If they have not taken the ACT, Calhoun does allow for students to take a placement test in leiu of this score.  Your child's guidance counselor and our college dual enrollment counselors will be able to further direct interested students on which class may be a best fit.

  • What is the criteria for dual enrollment?

    Posted by:

    For both Calhoun and UAH, students will need an ACT score of 20 or higher in addition to a 3.0 GPA on their high school transcript.  ACT scores can be sent from the student's ACT account on the act.org website.  Calhoun does give the option for a placement test which can be scheduled through Calhoun's dual enrollment office with their secretary, Deb Ott.  Students must apply to Calhoun at least 48 hours in advance before taking this placement test since they will need to receive their Account # (A#) before taking the test.  

    If a student plans on taking technical classes-- automotive, welding, etc.-- with Drake State or Calhoun, they will need a GPA of a 2.5 or higher.

  • How do I know if I am registered for dual enrollment classes?

    Posted by:

    During spring registration, you will register for dual enrollment for your desired blocks to secure room in your schedule.  In order to be enrolled in classes, it is your job to retrieve and return paperwork required for dual enrollment.  This is available through your guidance counselor.  Typically, each college sends out a confirmation email when you are enrolled in your classes after registration officially opens for the college. You should have received confirmation for your fall 2019 courses if enrolled through Calhoun.  If for some reason you have not, contact your guidance counselor at James Clemens.  Spring registration for 2020 will not happen to around mid-way through the fall semester.  Be listening for announcements.
