The ACT or  Accuplacer test is not required for an admission. However,  if a student plans to take an English or Math class a qualifying score from one or the other is required for placement.  Dually enrolled students are not permitted to take co-requisite courses in English and/or Math.

If submitting an ACT score, an official score report is NOT required.  A screenshot from a computer (not a smart phone) is acceptable, but the student’s first and last name must be shown.

For an easy tip on getting the entire name to show on the screen shot (especially helpful with longer names) check out the ACT Screenshot Tutorial.

An  18 or higher on the English portion of the ACT is required for enrollment in English 101.

Students planning to take a math course with an ACT mathematics score of 18 or higher are exempted from the Accuplacer placement test. Placement of these students will be evaluated using the following criteria:

  • ACT math score 18-21 Math 100 Intermediate College Algebra
  • ACT math score 22 Math 110 (Finite Mathematics) or Math 112 (Pre-calculus with Algebra)
  • ACT math score 23-24 Math 113 (Pre-calculus with Trig)
  • ACT math score 25 or higher Math 125 Calculus I

Students should speak with their high school guidance counselor about courses that can be taken for dual enrollment credit.  If a student is new to the program, the student should FIRST apply online to the college.  Next, the student will complete the online dual enrollment application located on the dual enrollment webpage.  Students should use their personal email address, not their school nor parent’s email, as they will receive a series of emails once they begin this process.  Check this email regularly for updates.

Students will be required to upload a current photo ID into the dual enrollment application.  If a student does not have an ID, the counselor and/or career coach may submit a signed copy of the student’s Powerschool profile sheet and copy of the student’s birth certificate.  Emails will be sent back and forth throughout the process once the dual enrollment application process begins.  Once admissions has confirmed the student’s admittance to the college, the student will check the online schedule (when published each semester) to select classes for registration.  Students will register for classes and make payment through their OneACCS account online when registration dates open.

Note:  Students will only be permitted to register for specific approved class(es) listed on the Statement of Eligibility Form submitted during the application process.  If a change must be made to these course selections, it must be initiated with the high school counselor FIRST for the revision.

Please note that a qualifying ACT and/or Accuplacer score is required for English and Math placement.

On September 13, 2018, the Alabama State Board of Education amended the Alabama Administrative Code, Rule No. 290-3-1-.02, pertaining to secondary course credit awarded for post-secondary coursework through dual enrollment. The revised rule now includes the following language:  “Semester credit hours at the post-secondary level courses specifically named as a requirement for graduation as outlined in AAC Rule 290-3-1-.02(8)(a) are determined according to guidelines established by the State Department of Education. Partial/full credit agreements shall be developed between the local board of education and participating post-secondary institutions for courses that are excluded from the SDE guidelines for assigning credit.”

The local LEA determines what is reflected on the high school transcript based off of the approved dual enrollment course list.

The courses offered are taught as any other college class with fully-credentialed Wallace Community College faculty using the same textbooks and syllabi whether taught on a high school campus or on a WCC campus.

Students should work very closely with their guidance counselors during the process of admission. Students may also contact Wallace Community College’s dual enrollment department at dualenrollment@wallace.edu or 556-2423 for more information.
