Beginning this fall, home-schooled high school juniors and seniors can earn college credit from the University of Memphis before they graduate from high school. Classes will be taught by U of M instructors at the University’s satellite campus in Collierville, the Carrier Center, 500 Winchester Blvd.

Under the dual enrollment program, students receive college credit while simultaneously meeting a high school requirement. Last fall more than 300 high school students took dual enrollment courses through the U of M. The new classes are designed specifically for home-schooled students.

Two courses will  be offered during the fall semester 2009 – college algebra on Mondays and Wednesdays and English composition on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Both classes will run from 2:20 to 3:45 p.m.

“Dual enrollment has become extremely popular over the past few years, due in part to grant-funding through the Tennessee HOPE lottery program,” said Dr. William Akey, U of M assistant vice provost for enrollment services.

Application for the dual enrollment grant can be made online at

More information is available from the U of M by phone at 901-678-3995 or online at, then “Dual Enrollment.”
