Dual Credit

What is Dual Credit?
Dual Credit courses are college courses provided by institutions of higher education (IHE). These colleges are typically local junior colleges that LEISD has partnered with but can also be four year universities or online programs. 

Why take Dual Credit?
Benefits to DC courses include increased savings and an easier transition to college as well as higher rates of successful and on time completion of college. DC allows students the opportunity to enroll in a college course while also earning high school credit. *Students can graduate having earned core college credits, giving them a head start with their post high school education. 

Who should take Dual Credit?
Students who want to take challenging college courses while also earning high school credit should consider DC. Students should always discuss schedules and course selections with counselors and parents to ensure the best choices are made for short and long-term success. Remember, as soon as you take a DC course your college transcript has begun.
