Dual Enrollment

High school students can earn KCAD college credit through our Dual Enrollment program. Students can enroll in classes on KCAD's campus in Grand Rapids, Michigan or at one of our satellite dual enrollment locations.


It's a great way for highly motivated high school students who are strong in art and design to get a jump on college. You may even be eligible to receive tuition support through the State of Michigan - State School Aid Act. Speak to your school counselor for eligibility requirements and more information.
