Dual Use of Credit

National American University encourages high-performing high school students to extend their education through the completion of college-level courses while still enrolled in high school. In addition, with their high school district’s approval, these courses may also be applied to high school graduation requirements. High school students wishing to take college-level courses at NAU must meet the following requirements:

  1. Satisfy the university’s requirements for enrollment into EN1150 Composition I and MA2050 College Algebra or have a minimum ACT score of 20 in English and math or a minimum SAT score of 500 in verbal and math;
  2. Have a minimum 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale in all high school course work;
  3. Complete the university’s dual credit application with the appropriate parental and high school administrator’s signatures;
  4. Be a high school junior or senior. High school freshmen and sophomores with ACT or SAT scores in the 90th percentile or above may also be eligible for dual credit courses.

High school students enrolled in National American University dual-credit courses will be required to meet the same admissions and course requirements as regularly enrolled university students.
