Apply and Register

Step 1: Print the Dual Enrollment Checklist and Important Information

Follow these steps to complete the necessary paperwork:


Step 2: Apply for Admission (once per academic year)

Admission is the process of becoming a GFC MSU student and is only done once per academic year.

Dual Enrollment students need to complete an abbreviated application for admission:


The application needs to be printed and submitted with the Registration Form. *DE students do not pay the application fee and only need to complete an application one time per academic year (not each semester).

Application reminders:

  • Fill out the complete application.
  • Include all applicable signatures
  • Keep a copy of all paperwork submitted
  • Start a Dual Enrollment file to keep all of your dual enrollment files.


Step 3: Register for classes (each semester)

Registration is the process of choosing your classes and must be done each semester for each DE class.

Before you register, make sure you meet pre-requisites.

Many classes require pre-requisites. Pre-requisites help ensure that you are prepared to be successful in certain college classes. Talk with your high school counselor to make sure you have the appropriate placement scores on file. You can also reference the placement flow chart here:


Complete the Registration Form for Dual Enrollment Students and the Dual Enrollment Student Authorization for Release of Information


GFC MSU manually registers DE students for classes. This means, you list the classes you want to take on the registration form and our staff programs you into those classes. Once you’re a regular college student at GFC MSU, you’ll register for classes on your own using an on-line system. 

*If you are enrolling in an on-line or on-campus class, you must follow the Academic Calendar  for all deadlines. Application and Registration/Release forms usually are due one week prior to the start of term.*

*If you are enrolling in Concurrent Dual Enrollment (college classes offered in your own high school), you will follow a different timeline. Application and Registration/Release forms are completed in your concurrent class at your high school within the first few weeks. Your teacher and counselor will give you instructions.
