    How Does Dual Enrollment Work?
    Each student who chooses to participate in the dual enrollment program will need to complete a registration form to be considered for the program. (See the list of participating schools for your specific registration form.) In addition, you will need to submit a copy of your high school transcript.

    Mail all requested documentation to Kim Grilli, Community & Regional Outreach Manager, Office of Admission, Ohio Dominican University, 1216 Sunbury Road, Columbus, OH 43219. Please note that you must meet the program's Admission Requirements and appropriate deadlines

    The Project JumpStart Student Handbook is an excellent resource.

    Once the student has completed the dual enrollment course, a grade report will be issued by the Ohio Dominican University Registrar's Office. The grade you receive from your high school instructor is the grade that is recorded on your ODU transcript.

    Admission Requirements
    To be eligible for Ohio Dominican's Project JumpStart Dual Enrollment Program, you must meet all of the following requirements:

    • Carry at least a 3.0 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) OR 2.75 GPA (on a 4.0 scale) with a ACT composite score of at least 20
    • Comply with high school course requirements
    • Have parent/guardian and high school official permission
    • Complete the application and enrollment process and be formally accepted to ODU for each course
    • Successfully complete pre-requisite course requirements
    • Submit an official copy of your high school transcript (High School Transcript Request form)

    What is the cost?
    The tuition for all dual enrollment courses for students attending Diocesan schools is $65 per credit hour and $75 per credit hour for all participating public schools for the 2013-2014 academic year. The application fee is waived for all dual enrollment students. 

    What is the deadline to register?
    The registration deadline for each term is posted on our Important Dates and Deadlines page. The application and registration forms must be received in the ODU Admissions Office by the indicated dates. A postmark by these dates are NOT sufficient. Forms must actually be received in office by the posted deadline. 

    What is the difference between AP and Dual Enrollment?
    Dual Enrollment credit differs from AP in that the grade is not solely based on one test that is taken at the end of the course. For Dual Enrollment students, the grade earned for the course is the grade reported on the high school transcript as well as the Ohio Dominican University transcript.

    Not all students accurately demonstrate what they have learned by taking standardized tests. Students who plan to take the AP exam have only one opportunity to demonstrate success. Project JumpStart students are graded on all assignments throughout the term of the course and receive a course grade for their cumulative classroom effort, without the pressure of a one-time test.

    Students who successfully pass the AP exam may have the course requirement waived by the institution the student attends; however, it may not reduce the number of hours that the student needs to graduate from that institution. Credit earned through Project JumpStart fulfills the course requirements and also applies toward the total number of credits an institution requires for graduation in most instances.

    What resources are available to dual enrollment students?
    All Project Jumpstart students can obtain an ODU Student ID which provides full student privileges for the library, sporting events, and other campus student activities. Students can take advantage of the online resources on our Career Development website. Workshops and tutors are also available through the Academic Resource Center.

    How do I drop a dual enrollment course?
    Students who need to drop a course must contact both the high school and Ohio Dominican University. Remember, students are concurrently enrolled in both systems. Students can drop the course from ODU but remain enrolled in the high school course. The student will need to complete and submit the Project JumpStart Drop Form prior to the drop deadline. Students can print the form and fax it to the Registrar. The fax number is listed on the document. Each term the Calendar of Events will list the last day to drop with a refund and the last day to drop a course with no refund.

    How do I transfer a course after high school graduation?
    If you choose to attend Ohio Dominican University after graduation, you do not need to take any additional steps to have your dual enrollment credit transferred to your degree program. The application of dual enrollment credit towards your degree requirements will be automatic.

    If you choose to attend elsewhere after graduation, you will need to request that an official ODU transcript be sent to the college or university you plan to attend. ODU does not send transcripts without your written request. Your official ODU transcripts may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. The request must be in writing. Please click here to download the ODU Transcript Request Form. This form is also available in the Registrar's Office (Erskine Hall Room 145).

    The acceptance of transfer credit is at the discretion of the receiving institution. College policies vary in regard to transfer credit. However, college courses are generally accepted for transfer if completed with a grade of "C" or better.
