  • If you are new to the dual enrollment program and are taking classes on the Ferris State University-Big Rapids campus, the Big Rapids High School, Crossroads Charter Academy, Mecosta-Osceola Career Center, or Morley Stanwood High School campuses, you should attend orientation. 

    You may review the online orientation guide if you cannot attend a live orientation session.

  • Dual enrolling in college courses while still in high school is a great way for you to expand your interests and experiences while earning credits that may help you complete your college degree sooner. To help you prepare for the dual enrollment experience, the FerrisNow Program holds orientation for students and their parents/guardians.
