Dual Credit Program/Early College

What is dual credit?

Dual credit classes are college courses for which a student receives both high school and college credit. Dual credit will be received upon successful completion of college courses with a minimum grade of “C”. A grade of “C” or better is required to receive high school credit. Check with the high school or college counselor for more information about credits. Students can earn dual credit in both academic and/or technical courses.
