Take college-level classes and save money as a high school student
My Kirtland experience began with classes when I took Dual Enrollment classes in high school. I really connected with the instructors and realized how much I could gain financially and educationally by attending Kirtland before transferring to a four year school to finish my business degree.
Are you a high school student who’s ready for college? Get a jumpstart on higher education with Kirtland Community College. Our online and on-campus courses at our Grayling and Gaylord campuses or IRESA or Houghton Lake and are available to local high school students, and transfer seamlessly to other community colleges and four-year universities.
In Michigan, dual enrollment students take classes for free, which means your family will save over $121 per credit hour at Kirtland, and up to five times more than that for in-state university education.
If you’re a high-achieving high school student with an SAT score of 480 or an ACT score of 21 or higher in reading, and have the time to add another class to your schedule, dual enrollment is an opportunity to gain college experience, earn college credit—take up to 10 classes—and save money! With your counselor’s permission, you may also try qualifying the Accuplacer placement test at your school on the scheduled day.
