The TJC Dual Credit program provides an opportunity for eligible high school students, grades 9-12, to participate in college courses and receive both high school and college credit for the same course. Students can take academic and technical dual credit courses. Under current law, high school students may take college courses toward the core, a career & workforce certificate, and/or foreign language.
In order to appropriately select some core classes, students should refer to the transfer policies of the four-year institution to which they plan to transfer.
Academic Dual Credit
These are courses which are required for an AA or AS degree at TJC and generally transfer to a four-year bachelor’s degree. College credentialed faculty at the high school or through TJC teach these courses.
Students must be eligible to enroll in academic college courses through one of the approved testing models.
Technical & Workforce Dual Credit
These are courses designed to help you complete a certificate or AAS at TJC and may transfer into TJC’s own BAS and BAT degrees, or to other four-year BAS, BAT and BAAS degrees. When offered at the high school, courses are typically taught by a college credentialed high school instructor who serves as a TJC adjunct professor. Courses part of a level-certificate do not require TSI readiness.
