Dual Credit Classes
Dual credit classes (sometimes referred to as the Early College Program) are designed to offer college course experiences for students planning to attend a 4-year university or 2-year technical college. All dual credit courses have dual credit articulation agreements with public universities and technical colleges in South Carolina.
Dual credit means that students can earn high school and college credit at the same time during their high school program. Some dual credit courses are “college transfer” courses to a 4-year university, while others are transferable within technical college programs only. Private universities (both in and out-of-state) and public out-of-state universities may not accept these courses for any credit.
These courses carry a 1.0 quality point weighting over college preparatory courses. All dual credit courses are dependent upon the district having teachers who meet the subject specific qualifications of the credit-awarding institution and sufficient enrollment in the course. When these criteria are not met, courses may lose the dual credit articulation.
