How to Apply for Dual Credit

Dual credit coursework enables high school students to make progress towards a college degree before they finish high school and save on the overall cost of a college education.

Dual Credit at CSI continues to grow with over 6,000 students earning dual credits in the 2019-2020 academic year. With that growth, the Early College team is dedicated to ensuring students have access to the help and resources they need at all of the 60+ high schools we partner with. Idaho is helping to lead the way in dual enrollment, ranking in the top five states in the nation for dual credit participation!

  • Calculating Your Total Course Cost: (3 credit class X $75.00 per credit = $225.00 total)
  • To utilize Fast Forward funds, students need to request funding for each course through Advanced Opportunities. Please contact your high school for more information.


Please Note: If a student fails or withdraws from a dual credit course that was paid for with Fast Forward funding, a hold will be placed on their Advanced Opportunities account. To remove the hold, the student will be responsible for paying out of pocket for the next dual credit course they take (regardless of the course) and then passing that course BEFORE they are able to access Fast Forward funding again. Please visit the Advanced Opportunities website for more information.


Students may be required to purchase textbooks and supplies. Please visit the “Additional Costs” section on the Advanced Opportunities website under the blue FAQs tab for their policy on textbooks.
