Dual Enrollment and Early Admission

The Dual Enrollment (Program for Excellence) Program and Early Admission Program is especially designed for high school students who demonstrate the maturity and scholastic ability to be successful in college work.

Dual Enrollment (Program of Excellence)

The Dual Enrollment Program is designed to allow superior high school students to utilize Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University resources to provide extra enrichment and challenge to their senior year provided they fulfill these minimum requirements: completion of the 11th grade with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 in all high school courses, and a minimum ACT score of 20. Students must have also completed the following high school courses with a minimum grade C; English I, II & II, Algebra I & II, one additional math course, such as geometry, Trigonometry, Advance Mathematics or Calculus, and Biology and Chemistry. Recommendation for enrollment by the high school principal or counselor is required. All schedules are subject to the approval by the appropriate high school official and the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University Office of Admissions.

Students admitted to this program are subject to the same fees, rules and regulations as other FranU students. A student enrolled simultaneously at the University and a high school is also subject to any rules and regulations imposed by that high school.

Early Admission Program

The Early Admission Program permits an academically-outstanding high school student to forego his/her senior year and receive a high school diploma by completing 24 semester hours at FranU: All schedules are subject to approval by the appropriate high school official and FranU. Students applying for early admissions must demonstrate a high degree of academic potential and maturity to be considered for the Early Admissions Program. The following documentation is required and must be submitted to the Franciscan Missionaries of Our Lady University: A letter of recommendation from the high school principal, a six-semester high school transcript indicating at least a 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale), a minimum 25 ACT composite score or 1140 SAT scores and proof of immunization prior to registration. After 24 semester hours are earned, FranU submits to the high school principal a recommendation for issuance of a high school diploma. The high school diploma will be awarded by the high school. The student is responsible for providing an official high school transcript to FranU's Office of Admissions as verification of graduation.

Students admitted to this program are subject to the same fees, rules and regulations as other FranU students. A student enrolled simultaneously at the University and a high school is also subject to any rules and regulations imposed by that high school.
