The mission of Freed-Hardeman University is to help students develop their God-given talents for His glory by empowering them with an education that integrates Christian faith, scholarship and service. Our dual-enrollment program provides affordable access to high school juniors and seniors who are interested in preparing for their post-secondary, educational goals.
Dual Enrollment allows qualified high school students to enroll in FHU courses. Students will receive college and high school credit. Dual Enrollment at FHU also provides students access to campus and online resources such as the library, myFHU and student email.

Will dual enrollment affect a student being a "freshman" and receiving freshman scholarships when they enter college?
FHU allows students to bring in an unlimited amount of dual enrollment hours and still gives first-time students its freshman scholarships. However, all universities have their own rules about this, and it is the student's responsibility to look at their intended school to verify their dual enrollment policies.

At Orientation, students will get details on their classes, books, and other "what to expect" items for the semester.
