Dual Credit

Earn high school credits AND post-secondary school credits at the same time! At a limited charge to students, courses are offered online and provide high school learners with an opportunity to challenge themselves by taking a course at an introductory post-secondary level. Depending on your planned program of study following high school, taking a dual credit course could eliminate one of your required courses at the post-secondary institution, providing you with a lighter load in your first semester of college!
