Dual Credit Opportunities
Dual credit is the opportunity for high school students to earn college credit while still in high school. A qualified instructor provides rigorous content aligned with college coursework through regional post-secondary institutions and partnerships such as Northwest Promise, Oregon Institute of Technology, Portland Community College, Portland State University, Southern Oregon University, Western Oregon University, Tillamook Bay Community College, and Willamette Promise. Upon completion of the course, students can earn both high school credit as well as college credit that is reflected in a transcript from the post-secondary institution.
Because of the nature of post-secondary partnership agreements, qualifications of instructors, and staffing, in some circumstances we might not be able to offer dual credit aligned with high school courses. It should be known that when students enroll in a high school dual credit-articulated course, it is not guaranteed they will receive college credit.
