Dual Enrollment

About DIU's Dual Enrollment Program

Dallas International University invites high schoolers to take college courses for dual credit. For each course, students earn credit toward their high school degree and receive credit on a college transcript. Our dual enrollment courses count toward satisfying General Education requirements at DIU, but as a SACSCOC (https://sacscoc.org/) accredited school, our courses are fully transferrable to other colleges and universities. DIU provides dual enrollment courses for homeschooled students as well as students that attend a partnering high school.

What Will it Cost?

Dual Enrollment tuition is just $100/credit hour. Contact us today for a more detailed estimate of Tuition & Fees for your Dual Enrollment studies! *Students must apply and enroll as Dual Enrollment students to qualify for this special tuition rate. Not available for traditional undergraduate students.

Courses Offered


All of our dual enrollment courses are offered in-person and synchronously via Zoom (except WA2381, which is in-person only). Synchronous Zoom students participate live during class time with the professor and the on-campus students.


Homeschooled students must include a letter of attestation from a parent or guardian that asserts the student is capable of undergraduate-level courses and agrees for DIU to include the course on the student’s permanent record. Students attending a high school must attend one of DIU’s partnering schools and must demonstrate a 2.75 GPA or higher.

Where can I find the time each Dual Enrollment class is offered?

Will Dual Enrollment credits transfer to another university?

Students should be aware of the requirements of any BA program they intend to pursue and the possibility that Dual Enrollment courses may transfer into other universities as electives (rather than satisfying part of a specific BA program requirement).
