On-campus Dual Enrollment | Thomas Nelson Community College

On-campus Dual Enrollment

On-campus Dual Enrollment is available for home-schooled and high school students who wish to earn college credit in courses that are not currently offered in their high school through In-school Dual Enrollment. Students will take classes on campus at Thomas Nelson.

Get started

  1. Complete an online admission application. Upon submission, you will receive a Thomas Nelson student ID number. Please make note of this number for future use.
  2. Provide an official high school transcript which must include a projected graduation date.  A transcript is considered official when it is in an unopened envelope.
  3. Home-schooled students must also provide the following:
    • A copy of the Home School Agreement approved by the School District for the current or upcoming academic school year or
    • A letter from the local school board for the current or upcoming academic school year
  4. Demonstrate college readiness through the completion of the Virginia Placement Test or submission of applicable standardized test scores. 
  5. Meet with a Dual Enrollment Coordinator to complete the necessary student enrollment forms, be advised, and register for the appropriate courses. High school students are not permitted to self-enroll. 
  6. Once registered, students are responsible for all tuition, fees, and textbook costs. Payment must be made by the published deadline.

This process must be followed each term a student participates in the Dual Enrollment program.  Once the student graduates from high school, they will transition to an Advising Center and can complete and subsequent enrollment.
