High School Dual Credit
Why Dual Credit? You Can't Afford Not To.
Dual credit coursework is available to high school students in grades 11-12 at the rate of $48.33/credit! That's $144.99 for a three credit college course! Dual credit is an opportunity for high school students who meet admissions standards to enroll in postsecondary institutions in South Dakota and simultaneously earn credits for both their high school diploma and postsecondary degree or certificate. Students can earn dual credit by directly enrolling into a postsecondary institution’s coursework.
Find a Course
Courses are offered by the postsecondary institution’s faculty members, are governed by the postsecondary institution’s policies, and follow the postsecondary institution’s established processes for admissions, registration, billing and grade reporting. Through a new program approved by the South Dakota Legislature students are able to choose from a number of on-campus and online classes, including general education and career and technical education courses.
How to Get Registered
Your first step should be to meet with your school counselor or high school principal to talk about whether you are a good candidate for dual credit. Once you have the confirmation from your high school's representative that you meet the requirements, complete the form below along with your school's representative and guardian. You will indicate which course(s) you would like to join on that same form. Once the form is completed, send it to Jennifer Schelske along with your Immunizations records (proof of 2 MMR immunizations).
