Dual Credit

Published: 10/21/2016 2:31 PM

In Dual Credit, a student is enrolled in a course which allows him/her to earn high school credit and college credit simultaneously. This course may be taught on a college campus or on a high school campus, but it will be in conjunction with a college or university. 

Dual Credit Regional Training Sessions
Dual Credit Regional Training Sessions are coming to a location near you. Join us to learn more about implementation of dual credit programming in your school or district alongside partners from your region.  Leave this session ready to make decisions about course offerings for the coming year and forge new partnerships with your postsecondary partners.

This training will allow participants to take an in-depth look at many topics related to dual credit, including:

  • Evaluating dual credit options for the district,
  • Establishing goals and setting priorities in programming,
  • Ensuring teacher credentialing and supporting increased capacity, and
  • Evaluating your district's dual credit programming (accessibility, quality of instructional programming, transferability of credit, finance)

Appropriate audiences for the training are Guidance Counselors, High School Principals, Instructional Supervisors, Superintendents, and other district decision makers involved with dual credit.
