Dual Enrollment Programs

Dual Enrollment Programs

Traditional Dual Credit (Transfer & Career), College Express, and
Project Lead the Way

Dual credit means that a high school student is taking a college-level class that will be used for high school credit and college credit. Dual credit at DACC can be earned with transfer eligible courses and career/technical courses. High school students are eligible for dual enrollment with approval from their high school counselor.

Guidelines to Keep in Mind:

Courses taken for dual credit are more rigorous than typical high school courses. Course requirements, assignments,
and timeframes will reflect the demands of a college-level course. Developmental courses are not eligible for dual credit. Students are required to take any placement assessments and prerequisites necessary for the chosen college course. The College has established a list of multiple measures to help place students into the appropriate course-level: the college’s ACCUPLACER placement assessment, ACT and SAT scores, and, in some cases, recent high school cumulative GPA or high school coursework completed (for a few specific requirements). A foreignlanguage assessment is required for enrollment in all foreign language courses above the entry-level DACC course.
