* Enrollment in Montana high school district exceptions: The Commissioner’s Directive on Early Enrollment and Tuition Waivers includes a provision allowing traditional high school age students enrolled in GED programs, home school students, and middle school students to qualify for the dual enrollment student tuition rate in a qualifying program.
** Age and graduation progress eligibility exceptions: Exceptional circumstances may exist for individual students. When students do not meet one or more of the dual enrollment eligibility requirements listed above, the high school’s designated official may request an exception. Exceptions are most often requested for age, and less frequently graduation progress. The request must be in writing, explain the reason the exception is being requested, and provide evidence that the student can benefit from dual enrollment in the specific course, learn at the collegiate level in the course, and manage the combined high school and college course load. The designated college official or committee must concur in writing that an exception is warranted for the student to participate in the dual enrollment opportunity. In no case may exceptions be used to meet minimum class size requirements. Eligibility exceptions do not apply to required course prerequisites and required placement tests or scores (commonly required for mathematics and composition/writing courses). Homeschool students may request exceptions. Each institution may determine what non-parent individual should serve in lieu of a designated high school official, as well as the process for determining exceptions.
