Dual Enrollment Academy

Dual Enrollment Academy


Dual Enrollment Academy (DEA) participants receive college-level training to begin careers in high-demand fields. Throughout their senior year of high school, DEA students earn high school and college credits while spending the majority of their school day, both fall and spring semesters, at MATC. The DEA is designed for students attending high schools within MATC’s district.


Eligibility Requirements Student must:

  • Be a 2023 -2024 high school senior 
  • Have a Counselor recommendation 
  • Have a high school GPA of 2.0 or higher
  • Be in good academic standing and on track to graduate from high school

Student Benefits

  • High school seniors earn college credits and high school credits
  • Students may earn an industry-recognized credential upon program completion
  • Students attain an introduction to the college experience
  • MATC’s labs and work spaces feature state-of-the-art technology, and students benefit from their instructors’ professional industry experience
  • Credits earned through DEA can be applied to MATC programs in the future, which shortens the time and reduces the cost to complete a technical diploma or associate degree


Student participation in DEA is only granted when entrance and prerequisite requirements have been met and the School District agrees to pay for the tuition, fees and books. Not all Districts have partnered with MATC for DEA. Please check with your guidance counselor to see if your high school has agreed to participate.
