About the Programs
Since 1858, Hannibal-LaGrange University has maintained a tradition of preparing students for personal and career success. By participating in Early Enrollment or Dual Credit, students emerge from high school with a diploma and the added advantage of university level experience.
Early Enrollment allows students to take classes with college professors on campus at Hannibal-LaGrange University or through several other innovative outlets.
Dual Credit is offered through the high school instructors and works to satisfy the state requirements for secondary education while incorporating college level material, rigor and credit.
We offer a wide variety of classes, but the specific offerings change each semester. Contact us for specific listings.
Prospective Early Enrollment students are generally eligible to take any 100-level course offered in the main HLGU class schedule.

When do I pay? What if I need to drop a class?
Students are billed immediately and must make payment arrangements before the start of class. If a student needs to add or drop a class, an Add/Drop Form must be completed before the drop/add date established in the HLGU college catalog, complete with parental and high school counselor or administrator signatures.
What about textbooks?
Textbooks are provided by the school district or are available for purchase or rental from the Hannibal-LaGrange Campus Store. Any other required materials are the student’s responsibility to acquire prior to the start of class.
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.
Official high school transcripts must be submitted to Concurrent Programs directly from the high school, complete with official signatures and graduation date, before HLGU will release university transcripts.
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.
