- A student wishing to take courses through Dual Credit should be either a junior or senior in high school.
- The student must be recommended by their high school principal or counselor for participation in Dual Credit. This recommendation will be based on the student’s potential for academic success in college level courses. High school freshmen and sophomores who also receive such recommendations may be considered for Dual Credit classes.
- Some courses (ENGL 100, MATH 116 for example) taken through the program have specific requirements that must be met prior to being registered.
Things to Consider Before Enrolling in Dual Credit Courses
Prior to enrolling in dual credit courses, students should consult with their guidance counselor to discuss how the courses fit in with their schedules and the high school’s graduation requirements. Most colleges and universities will accept the credits earned through WKU Dual Credit. However, students are advised to confirm this with any college or university they are thinking about attending in the future. Students who have had success with dual credit coursework usually have a minimum GPA of 2.5/4.0 and an attendance rate of at least 90%. Since dual credit courses apply toward high school graduation requirements, the signature of a principal or counselor is required on the application form.
