WHAT IS DUAL CREDIT?

WHAT ARE DUAL CREDIT COURSES?

Dual credit courses enable students to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. The courses have been agreed upon between the school district and Midland College. Midland College Dual Credit Information

Dual credit courses may be taught on the college campus, on the high school campus, online, via interactive television or through a combination of those methods. Academic dual credit courses are fully transferable to public colleges and universities and most private institutions. 

Students are encouraged to work with a Pathways Advisor at Midland College to ensure that their dual credit courses will count toward their future degree. Career and Technical dual credit courses allow students to earn college level certifications while in high school that can lead to immediate job opportunities. Students can also continue their training at Midland College upon high school graduation.
