High School Students Dual Enrollment
As an exceptional junior or senior in high school, you might have considered starting your college career now. APU can help by allowing you to enroll in our 100 and 200 level college courses even while you’re still in high school. This is known as dual enrollment and may or may not lead to additional high school credits. Ask your high school guidance counselor about dual enrollment opportunities at your school.
Courses such as English, history, math, or other general education courses are easily transferred to most regionally accredited universities. If you know which college you plan to attend, we advise that you contact them prior to registering for courses to see if your transferred credits will be accepted.

- Select "undergraduate non-degree seeking" when you fill out our admissions application

To register for a course or two, select the “Non-Degree Seeking Student” status as either an undergraduate or graduate student when you submit our admissions application. This leaves you free to register for any individual course as long as you meet the requirements for that course.
You will not be able to use federal student aid (FSA) to pay for school when you enroll as a "non-degree seeking student" taking individual courses. And we strongly recommend that you first check with your primary institution or professional association to make sure the credits you earn here will be accepted.
