Dual Credit Classes
Jackson Christian academic crest

The dual enrollment program offered at JCS through Freed-Hardeman University provides college courses to high school students.


Students receive both high school credit and college credit and the student establishes an official university transcript.  By taking dual enrollment course(s), first term college students can have a reduced academic load and an advantage in academic scheduling in their second term.


Students in the Dual Credit program must have the following:

  • A minimum 3.0 GPA
  • ACT score of 21 (And at least 21 on Math portion for College Algebra, Precalculus, or Calculus)
  • A parent’s (or guardian’s) approval
  • Guidance counselor’s (or high school designee) approval
  • Completed and approved dual enrollment form with an attached transcript.


**Credits will normally transfer from FHU to other colleges and universities.  Please check with your college of choice to verify that credits will transfer there.
