The UMSL Office of Precollegiate Student Services (PSS) is excited to collaborate with the College of Arts and Sciences to offer a Dual Enrollment program for area junior and senior high school students.  The purpose of dual enrollment is to provide advanced high school students the opportunity to take college-level coursework. Students will have the ability to expand on core high school academic subjects while simultaneously accelerating their goal of earning a college degree.

The PSS Dual Enrollment program will provide students with exposure to college life and the rigor of college course expectations.  This is an opportunity available to a limited number of students. Admitted students would be eligible to enroll in the English online course for the Fall and an additional online course in the Spring. Students must maintain a 3.5 cumulative GPA in order to re-enroll for the Spring.  


The Spring 2023-English 1120- Introduction to Literature is a three-credit online course. This course will be conducted in a hybrid learning model whereby students are involved in face-to-face instruction and self-directed learning. Blended learning enables the course participants to work together, engage in discussions, and provide useful feedback to one another, which undoubtedly leads to improvement and higher engagement.
