Lee University to Launch Online Dual Enrollment Program This Fall

Cleveland, TN–Beginning August, 2024, Lee University will pilot a fully online, asynchronous academic program designed for high school juniors and seniors. Produced by Lee Online, the program will provide curriculum which satisfies requirements for high school and college credit, making it possible to graduate from high school with considerable progress toward a bachelor’s degree.

Lee University’s Online Dual Enrollment (ODE) program is accessible, affordable, and fully accredited. To qualify for ODE courses students must meet the following requirements:

junior or senior in high school
minimum 3.0 high school GPA
minimum 19 composite score on ACT

“We are excited to expand our reach more broadly to private Christian high schools and homeschool networks this fall to offer online Dual Enrollment courses,” said Lee Provost Dr. Debbie Murray. “The instructors are carefully selected, not only because of their expertise in the discipline they teach, but also because of their strong Christian values and desire to impact high school aged students for the Kingdom.

The ODE program is built with standard 15-week courses offering flexible, asynchronous instruction, recorded lectures, and weekly face-to-face office hours with the instructor. Asynchronous instruction allows students to work in the course on their schedule instead of having to log in at a preset time.

Based on student need, Lee also offers some accelerated, asynchronous 7-week ODE courses.  Ultimately, a student can complete college courses anywhere he or she has an internet connection.

At only $176 per credit hour, this program will save college-degree seeking high school students both time and money. Tennessee students may also qualify for the Tennessee Dual Enrollment Grant, which covers nearly all the remaining cost of the program.

Lee University is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), which upholds best practices and rigorous standards to ensure the highest quality educational experience, with the most qualified faculty, to prepare students for the rest of their collegiate journey.

Students interested in signing up for Lee’s Online Dual Enrollment Program should talk to their school’s guidance counselor to indicate interest, gain any necessary permission, and determine if other steps are necessary for their specific high school. Students can apply directly at leeuniversity.edu/apply or call Lee University Admissions at 423-614-8500 with additional questions or for enrollment assistance.
