Dual Enrollment

Dual enrollment course registration is now handled through ExplorEC, a new, SYSTEM-WIDE registration process. School counselors will soon receive a username and temporary password from Community Education in order to access this new registration system.

Dual Enrollment logo Dual Enrollment is defined as UMFK courses being taught at partner high schools by high school teachers qualified and approved as UMFK adjunct faculty. The courses are taught during the regular school day and can last one semester (3 credits) or a full year (3-6 credits).

Courses are generally aligned with courses already being taught at the high school (i.e., the high school course, Senior English, can be aligned with UMFK’s English Composition I and II). Course curriculum must meet all of UMFK’s learning outcomes. Teachers are also required to provide evidence of rigor, assessment, and sample student work.

Tuition is free for students. The Maine Department of Education, through the Maine Aspirations program, pays for half the tuition and UMFK grants a scholarship for the other half. Students and their parents/guardians are responsible for course fees and books, when required. Course fees are $84.00 per 3 credit course.

Students that complete a dual course will have grades placed on an official UMFK transcript, which can be added to if the student attends UMFK, or can be transferred to another college of choice.
