Summer Enrollment for High School Students
Summer enrollment provides an opportunity for high school students with demonstrated academic potential to enroll in selected UM-Dearborn courses while completing their high school graduation requirements. The purpose of the program is to supplement and enrich the high school experience by allowing students to pursue course work which otherwise would not be available to them.
Students are expected to complete all graduation requirements mandated by their high school. After graduation, admission to a degree program at the University will be granted provided the student meets the minimum admission criteria. Typically, high schools do not have funds to support summer enrollment. Therefore, students are responsible for paying the entire cost of tuition and fees.
Admission Criteria - Seniors:
Students who wish to take college classes during the summer preceding their senior year of high school must have a high school GPA of 3.0 or higher.
Admission Criteria - Juniors:
Students who wish to take college classes during the summer preceding their junior year of high school must have a high school GPA of 3.5 or higher.
Students are encouraged to apply as early as possible. The application will not be processed until all of the following have been completed and received:
- Summer Enrollment for High School Students application (no application fee required)
- An official high school transcript
- Course Election Permission form (included in application above)
Placement Exams and Registration:
A student may enroll for a maximum of six credit hours for the summer term which can be in any of the three terms: Summer (full), Summer I, or Summer II. Admission with summer status does not guarantee that the student will be able to enroll in the class(es) specified on the application, but every effort will be made to accommodate the studentís needs. Information about registration, including how and when to register, will be mailed to the student.
If you are planning to register for an English composition, mathematics, or an advanced foreign language class, you must take the appropriate placement exam prior to registration. You may schedule an appointment for placement testing through the Office of Admissions and Orientation, 313-593-5100. Please note that it takes 2-3 weeks to receive the results of the placement exams. Students will not be permitted to register for English Composition and/or mathematics courses until they have received their placement exam results.
