  • Have a 3.0 GPA (unweighted)
  • Be enrolled in high school before the first day of the semester.

What is the cost?

$90 per credit hour plus the cost of any required textbook or calculator.

When should students enroll in the program?

Most of our students attend in 11th & 12th grade, however, the program is open to all high school students.

Are college entrance exams required for admission?

LETU does not require entrance exams for admission, however, there are prerequisites required for some courses and some high schools require the TSI or other placement exams.

Do you provide help with the technology?

Yes, our LETU tech support team provides ongoing support and instruction.

How do your online classes work?

Our classes are asynchronous, meaning they aren't live. You can log into our portal and work on your homework whenever it is convenient. Please keep in mind that our courses are not self-paced. There is homework due every week by certain days and times.

Are dual credit students able to take the online 7-week classes?

No. Dual credit students can only participate in the 15-week full semester classes except for a few summer classes.

Do you give scholarships to participate in the Dual Credit Program?

The dual credit tuition is approximately one-third the traditional cost per credit hour, providing a significant value for high school students.

Do other colleges accept the credits for these classes?

LeTourneau is a four-year university accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and schools. Credits should have no difficulty transferring. If you know the college you plan to attend post-high school, you may want to inquire as to their specific requirements.

Is tutoring offered?

Yes! Tutoring and other help are offered through the Achievement Center at no additional cost.

Is there a limit to the number of credit hours a dual credit student can earn?

There is no limit, however, it is best to start with 1 or 2 courses.

Is a student automatically accepted as a traditional student if they have participated in the Dual Credit Program?

No. Any student interested in enrolling in the traditional residential program must meet the regular entrance requirements for acceptance.


When is my LetNet account created if I am a dual credit student?
If you are a dual credit student, your account is created when you are accepted to the program. You will receive notification upon your acceptance, via email, with instructions for creating your LetNet account. In addition, you will receive your student ID, which will remain the same during your entire academic career at LeTourneau University. Generally this will take place within 48 hours of your acceptance, but at times it might take a little longer. 

So, what happens when I create my LetNet account?
For one thing, an email address is created for you, and you'll gain access to the LetNet Webmail system. Be sure to check your email inbox daily. This is the only email your instructor will use to communicate with you. You will also receive specific course instructions and campus announcements at your LETU email address.

What do I do if I still need more help?
If you still need more help, you will want to talk to someone in our IT department. Technicians are available for extended hours to help you get everything set up and working as quickly as possible. Click here for information on requesting help, hours of availability, and locations.
