Dates and Deadlines

Dual Credit is available to students year-round – semester-based or asynchronous (via iStudy). Below are the semesters available to Dual Credit students. The two-week intersessions (Winter, May, and August) are also available, but not recommended for new students.

Complete new student applications are due at least 30 days before the semester/session starts. Early applications for both new and returning students are highly encouraged as popular course options tend to fill up quickly. Our office does not guarantee students will be enrolled in a selected course and section as course sections may reach capacity before a student can be registered.

Late applications will be processed, but the Office of Pre-College Programs cannot guarantee students will be able to start classes on time.

Tuition and Fees
A student will be charged for course tuition and any additional course fees through the Office of the Bursar like other UM students. The student is responsible for the purchase of any books and materials required and/or recommended for courses taken.

iStudy Costs: Dual Credit students have the option to take online iStudy classes – flex or semester-based. The costs for iStudy are different than the cost estimate listed above and may be a more budget-friendly option. Students only pay for the application fee, program fee, and in-state tuition, making this a great option for out-of-state students.

All Dual Credit students receive a half-tuition scholarship towards the in-state tuition from the Division of Outreach upon successful registration of course(s). Non-resident tuition is not covered by scholarships.

UM Faculty/Staff: Children of UM faculty and staff members are eligible to receive an additional half-tuition scholarship. To receive this scholarship, please complete the Application for the Child of Faculty/Staff Award and return to the Office of Financial Aid. For more information on this scholarship award, please contact the Office of Financial Aid at (800) 891-4596 or email

Please note that both scholarships do not cover any activity, course, online, or any other related fees.
