Dual credit is earned when students complete college credit courses with acceptable grades and, with the approval of their high school, use these college credits to satisfy high school graduation requirements.
Note: Each school district determines what college credit courses they will use as dual credit and how they will satisfy high school graduation requirements. It is important to check with your school district for the most current list of courses.
