About the Programs
Early Enrollment and Dual Credit programs allow high school juniors and seniors to earn college credit at a fraction of the traditional tuition cost. Both of these programs fall under our office of Concurrent Programs.
Early Enrollment allows students to take classes with college professors on campus at Hannibal-LaGrange University or through several other innovative techniques.
Dual Credit is offered through the high school instructors and works to satisfy the state requirements for secondary education while incorporating college level material.

What's the attendance policy?
High school students are required to abide by the published course calendar, which is coordinated with the high school block schedule. Hannibal-LaGrange University does not differentiate between high school students and other students; all students need to make the necessary commitment required of their course.
Will my credits transfer?
Yes. All courses offered through HLGU are fully accredited. However, students should check with their particular school to be sure credits transfer appropriately.
High school students participating in concurrent enrollment courses are expected to abide by policies, rules and regulations as found in the Hannibal-LaGrange University Student Handbook and the college catalog. Students will be exempted from the residence and chapel requirements.
