The High School Dual Enrollment program is designed for high school students who want
to take courses at TU for college credit. Students must be at a junior standing or
higher in order to participate in dual enrollment.
Students in the program enroll in regular college-level courses at Towson University
during the summer, fall, or spring terms and attend class alongside other college
students. College credit is earned for any courses completed, and will be posted
to a Towson University transcript. Students may take any TU course, provided the prerequisites
have been met and if there is available space in the class.
Please note that admission to the Dual Enrollment program does not guarantee later
admission to TU as a degree-seeking student.

Tuition and Fees
Students participating in the High School Dual Enrollment program are responsible
for paying the standard tuition and fee rates with the exception of students attending
from any Maryland public high school. Fees are the responsibility of the student,
not the school system. For those in a Baltimore County Public School, Towson University
directly bills the school system for tuition only. Current rates are available from
the Student & University Billing Office.
