Pathways to Success

Ann Arbor Public Schools

Dual enrollment is a program that allows high school students (usually sophomores, juniors, and seniors) to enroll in college courses for credit prior to high school graduation. 


  • Students must complete a dual enrollment application

  • Students may only enroll in 2 classes (6-8 credit hours) per semester

  • PWY will purchase books required for classes

  • Students must return books to PWY at the end of the semester

  • Transportation may not be provided

  • 11th grade students must replace two blocks of instructional time at PWY

  • 12TH grade students must replace three blocks of instructional time at PWY 



In accordance with the Post Secondary Enrollment Options Act, Public Act 160 of 1996, all high school students can dual-enroll based on performance on the assessments listed in the table below. The student must have taken ACT, MME, SAT, or Compass and have one of the qualifying set of scores listed below. All other test scores will be taken into consideration with determining eligibility.

• The MME, ACT, SAT, Compass and Accuplacer scores are designed to be indicative of whether or not a student is ready to take post-secondary course and succeed without remediation.

• The EXPLORE, PLAN and SAT scores are designed to indicate whether or not a student is on track to be ready to take post-secondary course and succeed without remediation and meet benchmarks set on the assessments in the bullet above.

In light of these differences, the same weight will not be given to scores from the different classes of assessment.
