Dual Credit

Dual Credit

A Dual Credit course is a college course taken by a high school student for which the student earns both college and high school credit concurrently. Courses may be offered on the high school campus and taught by a high school or college instructor, through distance delivery over the CSI microwave system, via the internet, or they may be offered on the college campus by a college instructor. Dual credit programs are successful because the program offers something for everyone involved. Dual credit coursework enables students to make substantial progress toward college degrees before they finish high school. Students who begin taking courses in their junior year can earn thirty or more college credits by the time they graduate from high school if they also take summer classes at the college. In some cases it is possible for college-bound students to earn sophomore status even before they set foot on campus.
