Information for Parents of Dual Credit Students

What is dual credit?

Dual credit is an option available for high school students who rank above average in academic achievement, to take a Richland college-level class. Dual credit students take a college level class, and receive college credit and high school credit at the same time. The classes may be offered at any of these sites:

  • Their high school
  • Richland’s main campus
  • Heartland Technical Academy
  • Fairview Park Plaza
  • Clinton Higher Education Center

Eligibility

High school students, generally juniors and seniors, who meet all college course pre-requisites, are eligible for dual credit enrollment, pending approval of their high school principal or guidance counselor and their parent/guardian. Students in these college courses must have appropriate academic qualifications, a high level of motivation, and adequate time to devote to studying a college-level course.
