Dual Enrollment Policies
General Policies for Prospective Students and Parents
Flexible Scheduling Opportunities
- Dual enrollment courses may be taken at any of the Coastal Alabama Community College campuses, online, or hybrid.
- Academic and technical courses are offered at many local high schools or tech centers. Programs vary by location, please contact your school about available courses.
Summer Dual Enrollment:
- College credit courses taken during the summer may not be considered for high school credit. Please see your high school counselor to know if dual enrollment is allowed by your school during the Summer terms. Scholarship funding will not cover academic courses in a Summer term.
Students may take only the designated courses that the partnering School Systems and Coastal Alabama Community College agree upon. Courses numbered below 100 are not eligible for dual enrollment/dual credit, and students may not audit courses under the terms of this policy. For a list of courses offered, please contact the dual enrollment counselor at your high school or view the most current Course Schedule.
Scholarship funds are available each term. Technical programs fully covered - up to two (2) courses unless otherwise approved, up to four (4) in the Summer term. Academic courses may also be covered depending on funding.

The scholarship does not cover textbooks or Books+ fees. Those are the responsibility of the student.
If students wish to pay for Dual Enrollment tuition and fees with PACT, it is their responsibility to fill out the PACT Request Form and turn it into the Coastal Alabama Business Office. Students paying with PACT must consider the processing time and ensure they submit paperwork early enough to allow for processing. They must stay in contact with the Coastal Alabama Business Office through their college email.
ACCS institutions must comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) which prohibit discrimination against individuals with disabilities who are otherwise qualified for ACCS programs and services. Students that submit documentation of qualifying disabilities and meet the prerequisites of ACCS courses will be provided reasonable accommodations that allow equal access. Colleges are not required to provide equivalent accommodations as the secondary educational entity. Modification of curriculum is not permitted.
Please refer to the Alabama Transfers program and site for information regarding the Alabama state law that guarantees transferability of all academic credits for two-year college students.
In order to have college credits transferred to another college, students must fill out and submit a Transcript Release Form.
Students may view/print their unofficial transcript on OneACCS at any time.
College Class Withdrawal
Students must have permission from their counselor before they withdraw from a college class as it will affect their high school grade. The last day to withdraw for all Dual Enrollment classes can be found on the current college calendar.
To withdraw, students must complete the Dual Enrollment Withdrawal Form by the last day to withdraw for any term according to the college calendar.
Students who withdraw from courses or fail to meet minimum grade requirements will be ineligible for the program for a minimum of one term. The one term suspension may not be served during the summer. To re-enroll, the student must complete a new online application and meet the minimum grade point average requirements.
Students who must withdraw due to extenuating circumstances outside of their control may be eligible for a waiver for the term of ineligibility at the discretion of the Dean of Career Technology.
