Dual credit courses are college courses that you take in high school. You get high school credit toward your diploma as well as transfer credit toward a degree when you enter college. Choose from hundreds of available courses, start any time, work at your pace, and meet with tutors regularly to complete your assignments—no matter your current high school.

Advantages

  • Experience college-level courses now
  • Explore subjects not available through most high schools
  • Raise your GPA
  • Strengthen your college applications
  • Complete entry-level requirements now to take fewer classes in college
  • Receive college credit without taking an AP or IB exam.
  • The sample courses look good on desktop but it’s funny the way the list splits into two separate boxes on mobile. Can the two boxes be consolidated into a single list that breaks into two columns on desktop? Or made into an expandable list the way we do with the undergraduate degrees?

Good to Know

  • Dual credit courses require approval from your high school
  • Most dual credit courses count toward NCAA core eligibility requirements
  • Some dual credit courses have prerequisites, such as having taken a certain course or achieving a certain ACT score, but many do not
  • To ensure your dual credit courses transfer to a particular college or fulfil particular requirements, you should check with the college in question
