Dual Credit Courses
Dual credit/concurrent enrollment allows high school students to take a college-level course at their own high school, taught by their certified high school instructor. Students receive technical college credit upon successful completion of their college-level class (with a grade of C or above). The course is identical to the Madison College course taught on our campus.
There is no cost to high school students for dual credit/concurrent enrollment courses. Students participating in dual credit courses must register for their class following Madison College procedures.
Student Eligibility and Process
Students eligible for dual credit/concurrent enrollment 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.
- Talk to your high school counselor about your interest in earning early college credit.
- Create a Madison College student account.
- Enroll in your class using the Student Center.
- Attend your class at your high school.
Teacher Eligibility and Process
High school teachers who wish to teach college-level classes in their high schools must meet the part-time faculty requirements as mandated by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) and Madison Area Technical College. Teachers may submit their application materials at any time during the year; however, applications will only be reviewed in the fall, with anticipated high school implementation the following fall. For example, teachers submit application fall of 2020 and the class, pending approval, will be implemented fall of 2021.
The courses below are approved for area high schools to be taught as a dual credit course. Remember that courses offered for dual credit vary by high school! The classes we offer at individual high schools are the high school's decision based on their curriculum needs and staff expertise. Check with your school counselor to talk over your early college credit opportunities.
