Local Dual Credit Courses
Local dual credit courses are high school courses that are each aligned to a local postsecondary institution’s course and exam. Students who pass the exam earn credits that are accepted and/or recognized by the local postsecondary institution upon student enrollment to the college or university . Courses are taught by licensed high school teachers or certified college instructors approved by the school system and the postsecondary institution.
High schools may offer local dual credit courses at principal’s discretion with district approval and an MOU on file with the partnering college or university.
Weighted grades for local dual credit courses will be awarded in accordance to Board Policy 4.600.
Each of these courses qualifies as an EPSO upon a student's successful completion of the course and if necessary an attempt of the challenge exam. Students may need to pay a testing fee to attempt the challenge exam or pay a transcription fee to have the credit noted on the college transcipt.
