What is Dual Credit?
Dual Credit allows high school students to take a college-level course at their high school. Dual Credit courses are taught by a certified high school instructor, and students will receive technical college credit upon successful completion of their college-level class (C or above). The course is similar to the Nicolet College course taught on campus. There is no cost for Dual Credit courses for high school students.
Who is eligible for Dual Credit?
Students eligible for Dual Credit include recommended high school juniors and seniors who have maintained a high grade point average and are ready for the challenge of a college-level course. They may not have any significant disciplinary problems on their student record.
What steps should students take next?
- Talk with a high school counselor about their interest in earning early college credit and learn what classes are available to take at their high school.
- Once enrolled in the class, students should complete the course registration form and return it to their teacher.
