How do I enroll in the program?
If you are interested in enrolling in the Dual Credit Program, start by contacting the dual credit coordinator at your high school.

Depending on the courses you plan to take, you may have to take a placement test or submit ACT scores.
Message to Parents

Cost and Billing
Students enrolled in dual credit courses will use college textbooks. To reduce the cost of higher education, Lake Land College rents textbooks for dual credit classes to our partner high schools. Lake Land College bills the high schools for these books, not the students.
Students enrolled in courses on campus, at an extension center, or online who are paying regular tuition and fees will pay the textbook rental fee as part of the college’s service fee. Consult the Dual Credit Coordinator at your high school to find out if you are responsible for tuition and fees for your dual credit class.
There are a few courses that require textbooks to be purchased in both dual credit and dual enrollment courses. Automotive, basic nurse assisting, and medical terminology courses are a few examples that require textbook purchase. The Dual Credit Coordinator at your high school will notify you if textbook purchase is necessary. The coordinator can also schedule for the books to be delivered to the high school. Check with the Dual Credit Coordinator at your high school for more information.
If you have an unpaid bill to Lake Land College, a block will be placed on your account. This will prohibit you from registering for both dual credit and dual enrollment courses. You will also be prohibited from receiving academic transcripts and making schedule changes.
