Students must follow these guidelines when registering for dual credit classes:

•   Students must meet all prerequisites in order to register.  Specific requirements are available in the counselor's office.

•   Students who register for Dual Credit Courses can choose to register to receive college credit or not.
  
•   Students must sign up for these classes during regular registration.

•   Tuition for Dual Credit and College level courses will be paid by the student the first week of the semester.  Tuition is set by each individual college.  The school district will not pay tuition for any class offered for college credit.

•   Students taking a class for college credit will be responsible for required textbooks and fees.

Dual Credit classes are generally accepted at post secondary institutions, but students are encouraged to directly contact post secondary institutions regarding their policies.  Tip:  Whenever you visit with a registrar or admissions official, especially with out-of-state schools, if they agree to grant transfer credit, get the agreement in writing.
