Common Courses Available to Early College Students
Students should check with their high school guidance counselor to determine which specific courses are offered at their schools. Most institutions of higher education will not accept transfer credits for courses in which students have earned grades lower than a “C,” so students should dedicate themselves to producing work of high quality in every class.
Deadlines for adding, dropping, or withdrawing from a course must be met. These dates can be found in the tables at the bottom of the How to Apply page.
All courses require proof of reading proficiency. Additional prerequisites, co-requisites, or placement scores may be required.
Not all courses are available at all high schools as Dual Credit.
With counselor approval, any course is available as Dual Enrollment.
School guidance counselors should be consulted for current offerings at each school.
For a full list of courses available as Dual Enrollment, consult the College Catalog.
