Dual Enrollment Biology

The Dual Enrollment Biology Program at Truman State University puts you in the driver’s seat as you explore Biology (Truman’s BIOL 100).

The Dual Enrollment Biology program primarily serves high schools in Missouri looking for alternative approaches to traditional dual credit delivery systems.  The Dual Enrollment Biology system is ideal for small schools, schools without a teacher qualified to teach dual credit under state rules, and schools wanting to improve the overall readiness of their students to advance directly into higher level biology courses in college.
