How does dual credit work?
Many high schools will accept college credit in place of high school credit. If you want your college course to count as high school credit, have your principal (or mom or dad, if you’re homeschooled) talk with us. It’s their choice whether to allow you to count the course as dual enrollment.
- Courses are taught at the college level.
- Regional accreditation makes courses transferable to other colleges.
- Courses may be counted toward high school graduation requirements upon approval by your school.
- Our recommendation is to give one-half unit of high school credit for one- or two-credit college courses and one unit of high school credit for three- or four-credit courses. However, the assignment of high school credit rests solely with the high school administration.
