Dual Credit

What is Dual Credit?

Dual credit classes allows you to stay at your high school and take college-level courses.

Want to take a college course, but remain within the walls of your own high school? Dual credit allows high school students to take a college-level course at their high school, taught by a certified high school instructor and receive technical college credit upon successful completion of their college-level class (C or above). The course is identical to the Madison College course taught on our campus.

There is no cost for dual credit courses for high school students! Students participating in dual credit courses must be admitted and register for their class following Madison College procedures.

Am I eligible for Dual Credit?

Students eligible for dual credit include high school juniors and seniors who have maintained a high grade point average and are ready for the challenge of a college-level course. They may not have any significant disciplinary problems on their student record. For more information, be sure to speak to your high school counselor.

What classes are available to me?

Not all high schools or school districts offer the same classes. Check with your counselor for your most current dual credit course options.
