Marygrove College Dual Enrollment Program

As a dually-enrolled student and member of the Marygrove College community, you will have the opportunity to jump-start your college education at an institution that offers a rich history of scholarship, where caring and knowledgeable professors know you by name.

We look forward to meeting you and working with you, your parents, and your counselor to design a custom-tailored study plan that will enhance your current high school education, and give you a jump-start on your college career.

Tuition and Fees
At Marygrove, we've always believed that students should choose a college on the basis of educational excellence rather than financial considerations. For that reason, Marygrove's dual enrollment program has been competitively priced at flat, per-class rate of $375(approximately $125 per credit hour). This is lower than the tuition rate our full-time undergraduate students pay, which means that dual enrollment will help you save on your overall college costs! While we hope that our dual enrollment students choose to attend Marygrove after high school, credits earned here in the dual enrollment program can be transferred to most colleges and universities.

Information for Parents

Welcome, parents! And thank you for your interest in Marygrove College's dual enrollment program.

Founded by the Sisters, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) more than a century ago, we are an independent, Catholic liberal arts college that serves students of all faiths. Competence, Compassion, and Commitment are the ideals that form the basis for everything we do—and it has been that way since we began welcoming students in 1905!

There are many reasons students and their parents continue to choose Marygrove College's dual enrollment program over those offered by other institutions:

Cost: By giving your child a jump-start on his or her college education, you are not only investing in your child's future, you are saving your family a lot of money. Our dual enrollment program has been competitively priced at a flat, per-class rate of $375 (approximately $125 per credit hour), which is not only less expensive than many dual enrollment programs, it is $200 less per credit hour than traditional, full-time students at Marygrove College pay! Also, when your student earns college credit through this program, their college career is accelerated, helping them graduate sooner and reduce overall college expenses.

Intimate Class Sizes:
Unlike many of the colleges and universities that offer dual enrollment programs, Marygrove College is deliberately small. Our professors want to give students the one-on-one attention they deserve and are committed to facilitating a learning environment that is engaging, dynamic, and intimate. For that reason, classes at Marygrove College are comprised, on average, of only 15 students. As a result, our professors know their students' strengths and weaknesses and are thus better equipped to keep each student on track.

Student Life: Marygrove is a small college with a lot going on! From special events, guest lectures, and seminars to art exhibitions, sporting events, and dance and drama performances, dual enrollment students will never run out of things to do or reasons to be inspired. Add to that the excitement of taking classes in the city of Detroit and being a part of the extraordinary change happening just outside our campus gates!

We are proud of our city and so are our students. Our campus, located in the heart of the city of Detroit is an urban laboratory—a hands-on environment where our students are empowered to make a change in themselves and the world around them.

We know that choosing a dual-enrollment program is a big decision—that's why we'd like to invite you to sign up for a campus visit. This will give you and your child the opportunity to explore our 53-acre campus, meet current students, and speak with our friendly admissions representatives who will work with you to ensure that our dual enrollment program is the right fit.
