New Dual Enrollment Law Takes Effect This Year
Last spring, the state legislature passed a series of bills (SB 622-623 and 709-710) that changed key elements of Michigan’s dual enrollment law. With students about to return for fall semester, MASSP has fielded a number of recent calls and emails about the new law. Though courses must still meet the same basic requirements as before to qualify for dual enrollment, more students are now eligible to dual enroll and a school’s financial obligations have changed slightly.
In order to help bring you, your staff, and the parents and students in your community up to date, MASSP has prepared a brief, plain language summary of the new law that highlights the changes made to the statute, but also runs through all the requirements that students and courses must meet to be dual enrollment eligible. This document also briefly reviews the payment process so you and your students can know what to expect when the bill comes due.
