Dual Credit and Early Entry

DUAL CREDIT
Dual credit provides an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to receive both high school and college credit. The letter grade received in the course will be the same and posted on both the high school and college transcript. The cost of taking a dual credit course is the same as a college student would pay for taking the course.

Benefits of dual credit
By taking college courses while still in high school, students can get a few credits and lighten the load and stress of the first year of college. Students can ease the transition from high school to college, giving them time to adjust to rigorous academic expectations while remaining in a more comfortable setting, often with smaller classes and more opportunity to ask questions. Students and parents can save on immediate and long term costs of a college education.

EARLY ENTRY
Early entry provides an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors to receive college credit. The letter grade received in the course will be posted on just the college transcript. The grades earned will not affect the high school grade point average. The cost of taking a college course as early entry is the same as a college student would pay for taking the course.
