High School Dual Credit

ABout Dual Credit

The Dual Credit High School Enrollment Program is for juniors and seniors in high school. It allows students to earn high school and college credits concurrently. Courses are college-level, contain the same content and rigor as other courses offered at NCTA, and may transfer. 

Interested students should have a 3.0 GPA. If a  student does not meet this requirement, he or she will need a counselor's approval to take a dual credit course.
