Dual Enrollment

MTS Dual Enrollment 

Marshall Technical School offers several career tech and academic dual enrollment courses through Snead State Community College and Northeast Alabama Community College. Dual enrollment is an opportunity for students to earn both high school and college credit at the same time while taking a college course. In order to participate, students have to meet the admissions criteria set by the college. Both colleges allow students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grades to enroll in dual enrollment courses. Participation in an MTS career tech program is not required in order to take core academic dual enrollment courses at MTS. 

Career Tech Dual Enrollment

Career tech dual enrollment programs are offered in Public Safety, Welding, Industrial Maintenance, Building Construction and Medical Prep. Currently, a state grant is available to pay for the tuition costs for students who are enrolled in these career tech programs.

Students enrolled in the cyber security program are offered the opportunity to gain valuable skills in one of the nation's fastest growing careers. Cyber security is a high-demand field with 73% growth in online job openings. IT professionals with skills in cyber security earn $12,000 more annually than those without. Students who enroll in the program on the MTS campus have the opportunity to take the course in MTS's new cyber security lab. Cyber security courses taught on the MTS campus include CIS 161 (Introduction to Networking), CIS 280 (Network Security), CIS 171 (Linux I), and CIS 245 (Cyber Defense). 

Academic Dual Enrollment 

MTS currently offers several dual enrollment academic courses through Snead State Community College. Students must meet the college's academic requirements in order to enroll.
