The Michigan State Legislature passed the Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act (1996 PA 160) and the Career and Technical Preparation Act (2000 PA 258) also known as the "Dual Enrollment" Bills. These Bills modify and expand on provisions of the State School Aid Act providing for students to earn college credit while in high school. The Bills also require that the Board of a school District or Public School Academy (PSA) ensure that each student in eighth grade or higher be given information about college course-taking opportunities. The classes that students are eligible for must not be offered by the high school or PSA and must lead towards postsecondary credit, accreditation, certification, and/or licensing.
