Dual Enrollment Admission

Carson-Newman University welcomes applications from high school students who, during their junior or senior year, wish to earn university credit while still enrolled in a secondary school. Dual enrolled students typically will enroll for up to six hours of credit although permission to take additional courses may be granted (up to 11.5 credit hours per semester).  DE students must obtain permission from their high school in order to dual enroll at Carson-Newman.

Candidates seeking dual enrollment admission should submit the following to the Office of Admissions:

Application Deadlines:

  • May 1 for the fall semester and summer sessions
  • December 17 for the spring semester

In order for the Office of Admissions to process the applications for dual enrollment, students must apply by these application deadlines. If the student does not apply for admission before each deadline, the student may not be able to enroll in the class at the time needed to be dual enrolled.
