Interested in learning more about your opportunities as a dual credit student?
Our dual credit program was designed to smooth the transition from high school, shorten the time needed to earn an undergraduate degree, and improve the study habits, general academic readiness and academic options for college-bound students. Students eligible for the program are given the opportunity to enroll in college courses taught in their secondary districts and earn college credit while they are still in high school. Dual credit creates opportunities and changes lives through access to quality teaching, services, and experiences that enrich our diverse community.
