Dual credit is an opportunity to take a course or program and earn credit for high school and post-secondary at the same time. It means you can start your post-secondary journey while you're still in high school or start a pathway toward a specific hands-on career.
Who Is Dual Credit For?
Dual credit can be a way to jump start a career in trades, health or other hands-on industries. If you're curious about courses or programs in a certain subject, dual credit is way to explore what it's all about.
Dual credit may not be for everyone. Students should check with their intended institution to ensure that taking a post-secondary course won’t eliminate them from specific admission categories or scholarship criteria. Generally, students who may be concerned can take a course by audit in these cases.
