Take college-level classes and save money as a high school student
I take Dual Enrollment classes in Cosmetology while I am still enrolled in high school. It gives me the opportunity to get ahead of the curve. I like Kirtland because it’s smaller, more personal and you get to know the instructors more. You have a real relationship with them.
I want to go into special effects makeup and this gives me the starting foundation and I’m excited for what comes next.
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.
