Dual Enrollment Student Eligibility Framework

Louisiana Tech in partnership with participating high schools is pleased to provide an opportunity for qualified students to earn college credit while still enrolled in high school.  All courses in the dual enrollment program are taught at the high school during the regular school day.  Students earn both high school and college credit for the courses in this program.

Dual enrollment students are admitted to the University as visiting students.  For high school seniors, Louisiana Tech will automatically determine which students meet the requirements to enroll the following fall as regular university students, those who meet the admission requirements will be admitted and evaluated for the University's merit-based scholarship program.  Students who take the ACT or SAT in the fall of their senior year should send their scores to Louisiana Tech; scholarship offers may be adjusted if higher scores are achieved through the December test date.  Tech's ACT code is 1588; the SAT code is 6372.

Criteria to enroll in College Level, Degree Credit Course

Within the guidelines below, each high school determines their minimum student participation criteria.  Being on track to complete the Core 4 is a requirement for all students.

  1. ACT Composite score of 18, (or equivalent PLAN or Pre-ACT score)
  2. ACT English sub-score of 18 to enroll in English Comp I (ENGL 101)
  3. ACT Mathematics sub-score of 19 to enroll in College Algebra (Math 100 or 101)

Although Louisiana Tech sets forth the minimum ACT (or equivalent) scoring requirements for dual enrollment eligibility, each high school reserves the right to determine their own ACT score eligibility policy for their students, which may be higher than the minimum requirements.

  1. ACT Composite score of at least 22, and
  2. ACT English sub-score of at least 18, and
  3. ACT Mathematics sub-score of at least 22
