Please note the procedures to enroll in the SLCHS Dual Enrollment program for 2020-2021 school year.  Note McNeese’s adjusted guidelines for Summer/Fall 2020 enrollment in response to the Department of Education’s score recommendations:

  • Research your planned degree program at your future college to make sure our course offerings meet your needs.
  • Apply online through McNeese here. The scores embedded here are prior to Coronavirus; refer to the new score requirements under “Admission Requirements – Summer/Fall 2020 with Covid-19 Updates” here.  Students no longer need to meet the composite score requirement.
  • Complete the new Course Enrollment Request Form available May 2020. McNeese will continue to accept the previous form until the new form is available.
  • Send ACT scores to McNeese. The next National ACT dates as of now are June 13 and July 18.  All applicants who registered for the April 4 McNeese ACT test site were rolled to the June 13 ACT; that testing date is full.  Students can test at other Calcasieu Parish sites including LaGrange, Sam Houston, and Sulphur High School on June 13.  McNees and Sulphur High are available for July 18 testing.
  • See the new Accuplacer Testing Requirements here. Accuplacer costs $10; students can request their scores to be sent to other universities.
  • Expect to pay $300 per course plus additional lab fees at the start of the school year. Art 251 lab fees are $10, and all math courses included a $50 lab fee.  These fees are subject to change based on semester course needs.
