Dual Credit

Dual credit is an agreement between a university and a high school whereby students in high school can enroll in a course and simultaneously earn high school and university credit.

Dual credit provides an opportunity for high school students to experience university teaching and learning, thus helping ensure a smooth transition to university upon completion of high school.
