Registration for High Schoolers Earning College Credit

You are a high-school-aged student who wishes to earn college credit through Drake

Drake University provides students who currently are enrolled in high school and desire the challenge of academic study above and beyond what is available in the high school curriculum to investigate the opportunity of dual enrollment.

Students are eligible to take a maximum of two courses during the fall and spring semesters in day or evening courses and one course per summer semester as visiting students at Drake University while completing their remaining high school graduation requirements. Enrollment in requested courses is subject to course availability. Students in the Visiting Student Program also may qualify under the Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Act for financial assistance.

To qualify as visiting students to take courses while still in high school, students must:

  • Be in their junior or senior year
  • Provide a copy of their high school transcript
  • Rank in the top one-third of their classes
  • Have scored a composite of 115 on the PSAT, 1150 (critical reading and math only) on the SAT, 25 on the ACT PLAN or 25 on the ACT.

Applicants to this program must complete a Visiting Student Form, available in the Office of Admission or at their high schools, and receive approval from their school counselor.

For more information, contact the Office of Admission or visit the PSEO site.
