Financial Details

Everything you need to know about Dual Enrollment at MBU

AM I eligible to take dual enrollment courses from MBU?

Participate in Dual Enrollment beginning the summer after your sophomore year of high school by enrolling in college courses.

You can take just one class, complete a semester or year of college, or even earn an associate’s degree. With the large tuition discount, you can save time and money.

Courses completed may be counted toward meeting high school requirements, at the high school administrator’s discretion, and will count toward your future degree at Maranatha Baptist University.

Will my college credits transfer to other schools in the nation?

Maranatha has regional accreditation, which is the gold standard in the industry. Because of that, our credits are as transferable as any well-known university (i.e. University of Wisconsin, University of Michigan, etc.). That being said, it is always up to the receiving institution as to how they will use those credits. For example, a secular institution would almost certainly only use our Bible classes as electives. It is the responsibility of the student to check with the receiving institution to ensure our coursework will meet the specific requirements at the other school.

What courses should I start with?

You may take any course for which you meet the prerequisites; however it is up to your school what classes they want you to take to meet your HS requirements while earning college credit. It is always advisable for you to work toward a specific educational requirement, but that certainly is not mandatory.
