Post-Secondary Enrollment

NOTE:  Counselors are happy to help student’s select appropriate courses. We do require that students come to those appointments prepared with some idea of the areas that they are hoping to dual enroll.  Students can accomplish this by becoming familiar with the schedule of courses featured on LCC/MSU websites, and having looked at what courses LCC/MSU offers.

Lansing Community College
Please view the LCC Dual Enrollment Checklist and follow the LCC Dual Enrollment form instructions below.

In order to complete the form, students will need to look up the specific CRN for the course they want to take. Students can log into their Banner account to see what courses are being offered, or can look at our course offerings without logging in by following the below link:

Online Learning

Program Prerequisite: Application deadline date: June 1 for 1st and 2nd semester. Any changes to 2nd semester must be made prior to the start of 2nd semester. 
Students have the option of enrolling in online courses. Online courses offer a variety of subjects to high school students taught by certified Michigan teachers.  Students must be self-motivated and able to participate online. Assignments, quizzes, tests, and projects vary from class to class.  On-site enrollment will be provided by the virtual high school site coordinator.  Course information for all virtual courses is available at: Please choose the Statewide Catalog for courses students may take. A course percentage will be given by the VHS instructor and converted to a letter grade by the mentor.  Once approved, all enrollment is handled through the Student Services office. 

ELHS pays online course fees only for 1st and 2nd semester, and only if it is part of a student’s six hours.  These classes cannot be used for credit recovery.  Students wishing to take virtual classes over the summer or outside of the school day, do so at the expense of their families. 

Check-in with the Mentor teacher will be required during the fall and spring pupil count day periods. The mentor will inform students about this process. 

MVHS courses may start and end at a different time than ELHS courses. Please make sure to be aware of start and end dates. 
NOTE: The student/family is responsible to provide full payment to ELPS for associated fees of a course that is dropped after the reimbursement date. Classes will not be added or dropped after the first week unless there is an inappropriate placement of a student in a class or an extenuating circumstance.
