In 1996 the Michigan State Legislature passed the Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act or "Dual Enrollment bill." The bill modifies and expands on current provisions of the State School Aid Act providing for the participation of eligible high school students in dual enrollment or postsecondary enrollment options. The bill also requires that the board of a school district or public school academy ensure that each student in eighth grade or higher be given information about college level equivalent or Advanced Placement courses; and permit students in tenth grade to take the MEAP High School Test to qualify to take postsecondary courses. The classes that students are eligible for must not be offered by the high school or academy and must lead towards accreditation, certification and/or trade licensing.
