Dual Credit Opportunies at CACC

Dual Credit Program Experiences Record Fall Enrollment

During fall enrollment a record 198 high school students enrolled for dual college credit in career center classes for which they will earn a combined total of 692 semester hours of college credit with Central Methodist University, Missouri State University, Moberly Area Community College and the University of Central Missouri 

Fall enrollment is the first of two enrollment periods during the 2012-2013 school year. The second enrollment opportunity will come second semester when dual credit enrollment for career center classes will open for our students with Linn State Technical College, Missouri University of Science and Technology (formerly University of Missouri – Rolla), Stephens College and the University of Missouri – Kansas City.
There are currently 35 career center courses approved for dual college credit through our eight partnering colleges and universities. College credit for a career center class is possible when the curriculum and the competencies mastered are equivalent to those required in a particular college-level class as identified by the college or university.  Eligible students then receive both high school credit and college credit upon successful course completion.

Final grades are reflected on both the student’s high school and college transcripts. The college credit is transcripted for the student by the university whether or not the student attends that institution after high school graduation.  And the credit is transferable to other colleges and universities in Missouri and throughout the nation, if the student so chooses.  As an added bonus, college tuition for dual credit courses is usually less than half the cost of attending the course on the university campus.
