Dual Enrollment Steps to Enroll

As a Dual Enrollment student, you will follow the steps below to complete your registration to Mesa Community College. During the process, you’ll set up a student account, apply for admission, and complete the enrollment steps in one seamless application.

  • Have all test scores, high school transcripts, and ID authentication documents ready for use.
    • Plan to complete any required placement exams prior to starting the DE Steps to Enroll for quicker processing.
  • If you are under 18 years of age, you and a parent/guardian must complete and sign the Parent/ Guardian Responsibility And Consent for students under the age of 18.

  1. Step 1 – Get admitted to MCC by completing the High School Student Admissions Application

    • Complete the admissions application in a few simple steps. Upon submission, you will be prompted to proceed to Next Steps-Dual Enrollment.
    • You will be required to submit ID Authentication as part of this process. ID Authentication must be on file before you can enroll.
    • Upon completion of Step 1, you will have successfully applied for admissions, have an MCC ID number, an MEID, and password.
  2. Step 2 – Determine Placement & Course Requirements

    Before you proceed to Step 3, you will need to identify the course (s) you wish to enroll in. Follow the steps below to search for your available courses by high school.
    • Click on your high school and then select "see available classes."
    • Identify the course in which you plan to enroll and ensure you meet the admissions requirements listed for the course. Take note of the following: MCCCD Course Number, MCCCD Course Title, Credits, and 5 digit class number, & Instructor Name. You will need this information to proceed with Step 3.
    • If you do not meet the course prerequisite (admission requirements), you may need to complete an EdReady Placement Exam online.
    • If a placement test is required, test scores will be uploaded 24-48 hours after completion of your test.
