Dual credit means that a high school student is taking a college-level class that will be used for high school credit and college credit. Dual credit at DACC can be earned with transfer eligible courses and career/technical courses. High school students are eligible for dual enrollment with approval from their high school counselor.
Courses taken for dual credit are more rigorous than typical high school courses. Course requirements, assignments, and timeframes will reflect the demands of a college-level course. Developmental courses are not eligible for dual credit. Students are required to take any placement assessments and prerequisites necessary for the chosen college course. The College has established a list of multiple measures to help place students into the appropriate course-level: the college’s ACCUPLACER placement assessment, ACT and SAT scores, and, in some cases, recent high school cumulative GPA or high school coursework completed (for a few specific requirements). A foreignlanguage assessment is required for enrollment in all foreign language courses above the entry-level DACC course.
