Dual Enrollment

Undergraduate students enrolled in Clearwater Christian College may enroll in master's level courses in a semester in which they have nine or fewer undergraduate hours remaining. Students may earn a maximum of six hours under this enrollment status.

Non-Degree Students

Students desiring to take graduate-level coursework for enrichment or to meet teacher certification requirements may do so under the non-degree student enrollment status provided they are college graduates. The courses may be taken for credit or for audit (no credit awarded). All other academic requirements are waived. The maximum number of courses one can take as a non-degree seeking student is (2) two.


Once accepted into the Master of Education program, it is expected that the students will maintain continuous enrollment until the completion of their program requirements. Students who fail to matriculate within one year of the intended initial term of enrollment, whose enrollment was interrupted for a period of one year or more, who do not complete program requirements within six years of commencement, or who were released from the program for any reason are required to reapply.

After having obtained my undergraduate degree from CCC, it made perfect sense to get my graduate degree from them as well. I knew I could expect the same traits I appreciated during my undergraduate years: a practical education from quality professors with an emphasis on the Christian perspective.
