Special Programs

Dual Enrollment Students

Our dual enrollment program permits high school students to enroll in courses for college credit during regular semesters or in the summer. Credit earned in this program may be applied toward a degree at Anderson University, or may be transferred to another school. However, since transfer policies vary from institution to institution, Anderson University cannot guarantee that every school will accept credit earned in these programs.

Dual enrollment students must submit an application, approval from their principal or guidance counselor, an official high school transcript and appropriate SAT or ACT scores to take courses at Anderson University. Students wishing to enroll in English courses must make at least a 500 on the writing portion of the SAT or a 21 on the writing portion of the ACT. Under certain circumstances, it is possible for students to take courses at their high school and/or at Anderson University, which will count for both high school and college credit.

Teacher Cadet Students

The primary goal of the Teacher Cadet Program is to encourage academically able students who possess exemplary interpersonal and leadership skills to consider teaching as a career. Students enrolled in "Teacher Cadet" at partner schools may take EDU 101, which is a three (3) credit hour course designed to familiarize senior high school students with the role of the teacher and with the profession of teaching. All students enrolled in this program must meet the criteria established by the Center for Educator Recruitment, Retention, & Advancement (CERRA) for admission into the Teacher Cadet program. Please note the application fee for the Teacher Cadet application is $100. For assistance, please contact the Coordinator of Teacher Cadet Programs, Beth Poole, at (864) 506-5215 or epoole@andersonuniversity.edu.
