Ready to get ahead? Awesome.
When you take dual enrollment classes you get college credits while you're in high school. You can't go wrong!
Follow these steps to begin taking classes at Delta College.
All students should meet with their high school counselor or designated high school official to discuss eligibility and dual enrollment opportunities.
Step # 2: Apply to Delta
Create an account (use personal email) and submit a new application based on your student type. This is important so you are billed the in-district tuition rate for dual enrolled students and receive the correct communications from the college on the enrollment process.
Choosing the correct student type:
- Select “I will be attending Delta College while still in High School. (Dual Enroll/Middle College)”
- If you are currently a dual enrollment student who is graduating high school and wants to continue taking classes at Delta, select "This is my first time attending any college. (New Student or Dual Enroll who is graduating)"
Step #3: Account Activation and Multifactor Authentication (MFA)
About four hours after receiving your acceptance email, you'll receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org with instructions on setting up your Delta account.
This account will give you access to your Delta email, Student Self-Service and much more. The activation process is most easily done on a device other than your cell phone.
Need help setting up your MFA? Call 989-686-9575.
Step #4: Determine Course Placement
Delta requires students to meet placement levels for most courses. Placement can be met in multiple ways:
- If you do not have previous credit for college level English and math classes, but you have an SAT score of Reading/Writing 480 and Math 500, then send your SAT student score report to email@example.com.
- If you do not meet the above requirements, schedule Accuplacer testing.
If you are unsure if you need to test, contact the Dual Enrollment office for further discussion.
Step #5: Guided Self-Placement Survey
This quick survey allows you more flexibility to select the math and English courses that best align with your academic pathway, experience and comfort level. You will complete this survey at the end of Accuplacer or if you meet SAT scores you will receive an email to complete.
Step #6: Submit Your Tuition Authorization Form (TAF)
The Tuition Authorization Form is a very important step in the process. This form must be signed by you, your parent/guardian and high school guidance counselor then submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org prior to registration.
Information on the TAF must match what classes you register for or you will likely be dropped from your class for nonpayment and/or will not be able to purchase textbooks.
Step #7: High School Transcripts
Some courses have prerequisites that may require high school transcripts in order to determine eligibility to take the class. Send your high school transcripts including cumulative GPA to email@example.com. Your high school transcript can be sent directly from your high school.
Step #8: Plan and Register Your Classes
Once your high school counselor has approved classes for you to take (on the TAF), go to www.delta.edu/students, select the tools drop down in the top right corner, and select Student Self-Service.
Once you like the way your plan looks, use our step-by-step registration guide to register for those classes. Be sure to accept the financial agreement prior to registering.
For questions on planned, enrolled, and waitlisted classes please contact the Dual Enrollment office.
Step #9: Get Your Textbooks
Check with your school before purchasing your books, some schools pay for them.
All books and supplies are available to purchase through the Delta College Bookstore.
- The bookstore is located in the lower level of main campus in N015
- You can also order your books online
- Books are available approximately three weeks prior to the start of the semester
Step#10: Explore Campus

In many cases your high school will make full payment for you to take classes. If the amount your school pays does not cover the full cost you will need to pay the difference by the payment deadline.
Self-pay dual enrolled students must pay tuition and fees by the payment due date or at the time of course registration.
Delta payment options:
- Pay online through your Student Self-Service
- Contact Cashier’s office by phone at 989-686-9394
What are the benefits?

If you aren't sure where you're going to go to college when you graduate, take generic-type college classes in high school so your credits will transfer. Your high school counselor and the Academic Advising staff at Delta will help!
900+ high school students were dual enrolled last year.
Dual enrollment classes are usually paid for by your high school.
