Advanced Placement and Dual Enrollment
The Michigan Department of Education has received a grant award from the U.S. Department of Education for the Advanced Placement Fee Reduction Program. The funds pay Advanced Placement test fees of eligible low income students, and support activities to increase the participation of low-income students in Advanced Placement courses and tests. If you have any questions regarding the Advanced Placement testing program, please telephone 517-241-6895.
In 1996 the Michigan State Legislature passed Public Act 160, 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 to take the ACT, ACTPLAN, or PSAT 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. If you have any questions, please contact Sam Sinicropi by phone at 517-241-6895, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by visiting the Michigan Department of Education Website at www.michigan.gov/dualenrollment.
