Getting Ready to Graduate High School
Considering starting your college career at Reynolds? If you plan to enroll in a degree or certificate program, follow admissions steps for New Curricular Students. If you do not plan on choosing a degree program or you do not plan on completing a degree at Reynolds, follow admissions steps for New Non-Curricular Students.

Dual Enrollment
Reynolds has dual enrollment agreements with local school systems to offer college-level courses at Reynolds or at the high school location. All high school students who have been approved to participate may receive both high school and college credit. These students may not register for developmental courses or for health and physical education courses.

Dual enrollment at Reynolds is initiated through the students' high schools and is approved by the Reynolds Dual Enrollment Coordinator. The Residency for Dual and Concurrent Enrollment Applicants Form will be distributed by the student's high school. Students may also print the form. The Dual Enrollment Course Request Form must be completed by the parent or legal guardian and submitted to the high school counselor responsible for dual enrollment. Students who have received a Reynolds Student ID (Empl ID) should include it on this form.

Concurrent Enrollment
High school juniors and seniors may be permitted to enroll in college level courses prior to graduating from high school. In addition, students at the freshman and sophomore level must have permission from the Reynolds college president prior to enrolling. The Concurrent Enrollment Form must be signed by the parent or legal guardian and the principal or designee for each requested semester or term.

Homeschooled High School Students

High school juniors and seniors may be permitted to enroll in college-level courses prior to graduating from high school. Exceptions may be considered for freshmen and sophomore students interested in attending Reynolds. These exceptions will be treated on a case by case basis and require the approval of the Reynolds president. Students requesting this exception should contact the Office of the Registrar prior to start of the semester.

Reynolds must receive written permission from the student’s high school principal for each requested semester or term. The parent of home school students will be recognized as the principal. A Home Schooled Student Enrollment Form signed by the parent serving as "principal" and a copy of the letter from the respective county/city school system acknowledging the student's home school status should be submitted to the Reynolds Office of the Registrar. The Director of Admissions and Records must first approve each enrollment, and the student must meet academic requirements for the requested course.
