Admissions & Applying

The decision to attend college may be one of the most important ones you'll ever make. Don't worry—we're here to make it easy.

University Credit for High School Students (Dual Credit)

University Credit for High School (Dual Credit) is an initiative developed by Andrews University to celebrate the addition of Griggs International Academy to the Andrews family. This program is an amazing opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to earn Andrews University credit for $100 per credit hour! High school students are welcome to take either on-campus or online classes. 

High school students are eligible to take Andrews University classes if they meet the following criteria:
  • Students are enrolled in Grade 11 or 12 or equivalent education levels.
  • Students have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 from an accredited high school.  If a transcript from an accredited high school cannot be submitted, standardized testing scores are required.
  • Students whose first language is not English must provide evidence of English proficiency.
  • Signed approval is required from a parent and the school registrar (unless home schooled).
Financial limitations apply:
  • To qualify for the $100 per credit tuition rate, a student must register for and start the course(s) prior to graduating from high school or taking the GED test.
  • A maximum of two courses per semester is allowed.  Students must meet any prerequisites.
  • Students who eventually apply and are admitted to an Andrews degree may request that up to 30 of the Andrews undergraduate credits taken as a guest student be applied towards the proposed degree.  A minimum grade of C must be earned in each course to be accepted for degree credit.
Students will be responsible:
  • As each school makes its own decision about whether university courses fulfill high school diploma requirements, the student is responsible for clarifying credit status with their school counselor before registering.
  • High school students taking Andrews University courses are held to the same academic policies, procedures and deadlines as university students. These students will be personally motivated and responsible for their college level studies, requesting support as needed.
Andrews University college courses are available to eligible high school students in the following formats:
  • On-campus courses taken by an individual student or by groups of students through the Berrien RESA or area high schools, taught by Andrews University faculty or adjunct faculty.
  • Interactive online courses taken by individual students or by groups of students through Adventist Academies or Griggs International Academy affiliate schools, taught by Andrews University faculty or adjunct faculty.
  • Concurrent enrollment courses taken by groups of students attending an Adventist Academy, taught by approved academy teachers who serve as Andrews University adjunct faculty.
