IV. Returning Dual Credit and Accelerated HS students

        Dually enrolled students may register themselves online once all documentation and approvals
        have been granted. Dual Credit will have a restriction (3D) on their account preventing them
        from obtaining an official transcript prior to graduation.
       
        In addition, all dually enrolled students will have a dual enrollment attribute (DUAL) that will
        prevent students from registering online without the appropriate permits. This is due to the
        fact that permission forms are required each semester.  

V. Dual Credit Students Converting to a First-Time Freshman

        Students must notify Enrollment Services of a change of status if they have not graduated
        from  high school prior to attempting to register for classes. (Usually this only occurs in the
        spring semester when the student plans to enroll in the summer semester.)
