State Reimbursement Rules
Due to state reimbursement rules for college classes:
- If 1 dual enrollment class is taken, the student can and must take at least 1 regular partnership class, but can take up to 3 regular classes (including online).
- If 2 dual enrollment classes are taken, the student must take 1 regular partnership class, and cannot take more.
Dual enrollment students can take any class except for religion, craft/hobby, phys ed or remedial. Dual enrollment courses can be core subjects as long as they are taken for college credit only, non-core subjects can be taken for both high school and college credit. To get the college classes you need, you may register before partnership registration opens. You must also take one other Partnership class in order to take 1-2 dual enrollment courses.
Once you have met with an advisor and have the registration form filled out with classes selected and test scores filled in, send the form to Sharon to sign and we will fax it to Andrews.
The advisor can be reached at 269-471-6323 or at email@example.com
Note: High contact hour/billing hour classes may cost more than our allowance per class. Any amount or books over the allowance is the responsibility of the family. The exact amount may not be known until after the class has begun. Classes such as high level math, science, art, photography, etc. tend to have labs and high contact hours (4 or 5), depending on the school.
Important Registration Info
To get the college classes you need, you may register before partnership registration opens. One other Partnership class is required (community or virtual) in order to take any dual enrollment class. If one dual enrollment class is taken, the student must take one but may take up to 3 community or virtual classes. If the student is taking 2 dual enrollment classes, the student must take one and can only take that one community or virtual class.
Tips from AU Advising
While some students are connecting with faculty who naturally mentor and inspire career directions through class interaction, we would like to provide advising access to all students thinking about career paths. Rather than just taking classes friends have enjoyed, or parents consider fitting, a 20-30 minute appointment (via video conferencing) with one or more Andrews University advisors could spark new interests and establish earlier understanding of career paths. Please email precollege for an appointment.
Please review time management skills and all activities planned before signing applications. While 90% of high schools who are approved at our current admission criteria thresholds are thriving, those who struggle most commonly do not schedule enough hours. They need to have at least 3 hours of focused study per credit per week for each college class. For example, a 4 credit calculus class will need 12 hours per week - that's 2 hours per day, 6 days per week! Top students who are committed to multiple extra-curricular activities underestimate the time it will take to succeed in a college class, which is very different from the high school classes they've often been able to get good grades in with minimal effort. Students need to be mature for their age, self-motivated, and proactive in problem solving.
How to buy books
Andrews has a voucher system. Sharon will give the bookstore manager a list of approved students and their partnership classes approx. a week before school begins. The student MUST return all RENTAL books promptly to the bookstore during the return period. If the bookstore does not accept purchase buy-backs or if the supplies were consumable, the student may keep the purchase. If the store does buy-back purchased books, the money received must be returned to BSPS. If the student does not return rentals in time, the family will be responsible for either the purchase price or the late return fees.
Withdrawal and failing policy
If a student enrolls in a college class and withdraws from that class after the college's refund/transfer window, or receives a failing ending grade, he or she will not be eligible to take future dual enrollment classes through the Partnership. Parents have the option of reimbursing BSPS for all tuition and fees incurred in order to maintain their dual enrollment eligibility status. If the student fails to reimburse the school, the student may not participate in the partnership in the future.
