What are Dual Credits?
Dual credits allow students to explore their interests in selected college programs. They offer students an opportunity to experience learning in a college environment with a college faculty member.
Upon course completion, students earn an elective secondary school credit and are issued a college credit on a college transcript. The course will be recognized at college if they choose to attend a program for which the course is a requirement.
Dual credits give students opportunities to sample post-secondary education, to work in college labs, to experience a new environment and to build their confidence to be successful at the post-secondary level. Dual credit programs begin and end at various times through the regular school schedule; once students complete their program they resume their regular classes.
