SNHU in the High School Dual Enrollment Program FAQs
Can a student repeat a course to raise their grade?
Students may repeat any course. The last grade earned becomes the grade of record, and only the credits for the last grade earned count toward the student's record of completed credits.

Can a student withdraw from an SNHU course?
Yes but only with the support of the teacher. Students must submit a written request for withdrawal to the high school teacher prior to November 15 for a one-semester course or by March 15 for a yearlong course. The teacher will complete a withdrawal form, obtain the student’s signature and forward the official withdrawal form to the director for dual enrollment for processing. Should a student withdraw from an SNHU course, the fee will not be refunded.
How do students register for an SNHU in the High School course?
An electronic application will be available during the enrollment period at the start of each semester. Sophomores, juniors and seniors attending a high school where courses are offered are eligible to enroll. As part of the registration process, it is the student's responsibility to follow instructions carefully, meet all deadlines and follow up with each instructor with any questions or concerns. Enrollment in any course is not retroactive.
You will be classified as a part-time, non-matriculating and non-degree-seeking.
How does dual enrollment differ from International Baccalaureate (IB), Advanced Placement (AP) or Project Lead the Way (PLTW)?
Dual enrollment students earn official college credit upon completion of the course and earn a college grade based on a variety of assessments, whereas other programs award collegiate credits based on one exam.
What is SNHU in the High School?
SNHU in the High School dual enrollment program allows high school students the opportunity to earn early college credits while in high school. Dual enrollment is sometimes called “concurrent enrollment” or “dual credit.” The program enables students to take university-level courses for college credit as part of their regular high school schedules. Students experience the academic workload demands and requirements of a university-level course.
Designated courses have been aligned to meet the same content, rigor and learning outcomes as that of the university. The high school teachers instructing these courses meet the university’s adjunct faculty requirement and have been approved by the university.
Students will have the opportunity to take advantage of the dual credit opportunities at the beginning of the courses by completing an application and submitting the course registration fee for each class. Once the registration period closes, students will not be allowed to register for college credit. Since these courses are college courses, grades earned while enrolled in the course are recorded on a SNHU transcript.
What is the cost of SNHU in the High School?
The cost is $100 per 3-credit course; 1-credit lab fees (where appropriate) are $25 each.
How do I request my transcript?

Will the SNHU credits transfer?
Dual enrollment courses and grades will appear on an official university transcript. Generally, credits are accepted by all colleges and universities, but there is no guarantee.
Institutions accepting transfer credits determine the minimum grade required for a course to be transferred. Portability and transferability of credits rests solely with individual colleges and universities as they have varying policies on accepting transfer credits; thus, it is the student’s responsibility to consult with higher educational institutions to determine whether the SNHU course(s) can be transferred.
