Eligibility

Students who meet the following criteria are eligible for register for UMKC dual credit courses:

High school juniors and seniors with either an overall minimum grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) or a minimum composite score of 21 on the ACT are automatically eligible.

High school sophomores who have an overall minimum grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) may be eligible with written permission from a parent or legal guardian.

High school freshmen may be eligible if they have an overall grade point average of 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale), score in the 90th percentile or above on the ACT or SAT, provide a signed letter of recommendation from their principal and guidance counselor and have written permission from a parent or legal guardian.

All students under the age of 18 must have permission from a parent or legal guardian prior to registering for UMKC dual credit courses.

Some courses have prerequisites that must be completed prior to registration.

Students earning college credit in a course must have satisfied state graduation requirements in that subject area.

In schools where state mandated subjects are taken in grades 9 and 10, junior and senior students may enroll for both college and high school elective credit.

In schools not offering state mandated courses in grades 9 and 10, junior and senior students will receive credit simultaneously for both college work and high school graduation requirements.
