Scholarships Available for 

Dual Enrollment Students 

Workforce Development Grant Scholarship

This scholarship is provided through the Governor’s Office of Workforce Development to give area students a head start in several high demand careers. The scholarship will pay tuition and fees for career-technical courses only.

The funding budget for this scholarship varies from year to year, but it is an excellent avenue to obtain career-ready skills while still in high school.

Textbooks are available for many of the approved CTE programs for dual enrollment student use ON LOAN from the instructor when funding permits.

Unfortunately, the Dual Enrollment Department is currently unable to use the WFD Grant Scholarship to pay for individual student access codes due to budgetary constraints.  Therefore, we do encourage students to prepare for this expense out-of-pocket. 

Cannot exceed two funded courses under any scholarship (CTE, STEM, and/or Academic) in combination in the Fall/Spring Semesters)

*Online classes have a required proctoring fee through ProctorU that is not covered by scholarship funding. However, students can make arrangements with their individual instructors to test on campus for exams at no cost.

Currently these funds only cover courses on the Funded List.  These courses include:

BIO201/202 can be covered for Pre-Nursing students only. (Note: BIO103 is a pre-requisite for BIO201/202 and is not covered under Workforce Development grant funding. However, BIO103 is currently covered under the STEM Grant.)

*EMS is recommended for SENIORS due to the National Registry Licensure Age requirement of 18. Juniors opting to participate can test upon the completion of the EMS118/119 coursework but cannot obtain licensure until they meet the 18 year old age requirement.  Both EMS and MAT have a 2.5 GPA minimum requirement for Dual Enrollment.

General Academics Scholarship

The Alabama Community College System (ACCS) recently announced that the community colleges would be able to begin utilizing our Dual Enrollment Funding to cover more general education classes for our dually enrolled students.

What does this mean for students?   It means that any student that might want to pursue an academic associate’s Degree while in high school or those you might wish to complete more general studies academic classes will be able to take advantage of this opportunity as well.

Through the Alabama Transfers agreement, these academic courses will quickly transfer to four-year colleges/university across the state after graduating from high school.
