Dual Enrollment

High school juniors and seniors may be enrolled in high school and at Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) concurrently, but will only receive credit at the college (unless the high school has approved the course for high school credit). Students are responsible for all costs related to tuition, books and fees. Students must meet required ACT and/or COMPASS scores, as well as prerequisites, in order to enroll in these courses. Students are responsible for their own transportation. The course schedules follow the college s academic calendar and may require students to attend class on days when their high school is not in session.

Students who want to have their BCTC grades sent to the high school should submit a Permission to Disclose Grades form.
