Dual credit is a program that allows high school students to earn both college and high school credits simultaneously. Each high school in the WNC service area determines which WNC courses can also count as high school credit. High school students that successfully complete approved WNC courses may have the college credit also apply towards high school graduation.
Interested students must apply for WNC admission and enroll for courses designed for dual credit. High school students must submit a high school authorization form signed by a high school representative and a parent to Admissions and Records prior to enrolling for courses.
Students below the junior level of high school must have a minimum 3.0 GPA and be identified as academically talented by the designated high school official, and will be reviewed on a case by case basis for approval in enrollment in credit courses by the Director of Admissions and Records.
Upon successful completion of the WNC course, students must request that a WNC transcript be sent to their high school.
Dual credit is approved by each high school and subject to change. Students are advised to talk with their high school counselor before enrolling in a WNC course for dual credit.
