Never Dual Enrolled? Here's How to Get Started.

Review the Dual Enrollment Handbook (2018-19 accv) which contains helpful academic, student service-related, and other information that supports success.

  1. Fill out our Dual Enrollment Application. (updated 2/2017)
  2. Contact your high school guidance counselor in order to move forward with enrollment in classes at Mid. Frequently, the high school pays most of the costs. You will need to ensure that you are working with your high school so that payment and enrollment in eligible courses occurs. Because the conditions for dual enrolling vary, your counselor will assist you in making course selections that align with your high school's requirements. For home schooled students, contact us, and we'll help you get started.
  3. Complete the Dual Enrollment Registration Form (10/2018) with your high school counselor, and submit it to Mid's Admissions Department. Our Dual Enrollment Specialist will verify that you meet course placement and prerequisites standards, and once verified, enroll you in the course.
  4. Review your enrollment packet that you will receive at the address we have on file. This packet will contain a copy of your schedule, along with important information including the courses and schedule for which you've registered, your Mid Michigan College Student ID#, how to set up your Mid email, and how to purchase your text books. Additional information will include any remaining balance due, class locations, times, etc. This information is important. Make sure everything is correct and that you understand what it says.
  5. Attend an orientation. For new students starting to dual enroll in a fall semester, attending a dual enrollment orientation is really, really important! As a dual enrolled student, you are enrolling in college courses, and you’ll need to know what that entails, what to expect, and what consequences are attached if you don’t succeed.Learn all of that and get a chance to ask questions in person.

Orientation will be hands-on and fast-paced. Fall session schedules will be mailed to enrollees and posted here when they become available. New Winter start students will be sent an invitation to their Mid email to enroll in our online Dual Orientation so please check that address regularly.

At orientation, you will be able to

    • Buy books
    • Get your ID
    • Set up your email and online accounts
    • Meet other dual students
    • Get a campus tour

Steps for buying your text books

If you are participating in an enhanced dual school or Early College, you will likely not need to purchase your text books. In these cases, Mid provides text books to your school. Check with your guidance counselor if you are unsure whether your school participates in one of these arrangements.

All other dual enrollees will need to buy text books on campus or online. Your registration form (which was mailed to you) shows the classes for which you are registered, as well as class locations, times, etc.

We have campus bookstores in both Mt. Pleasant and Harrison. For fall, text books typically become available at the Bookstores around July.

To buy Online:

  1. Go to
  2. On the left, click Buy Books Online
  3. Under "Generate Your Book List" , Select a Campus Term
  4. Select Department (ex. ACC).
  5. Select a Course.(Ex. 101, 102)
  6. Select a Section (ex. W02).
  7. Select "ADD". Repeat the process to add multiple courses.
  8. When you have your course list, Select "Generate Book List". This will provide you a list and price options of required and optional books for each course.
