Dual Credit Considerations: Things to Think About….


  • Talk this over…dual enrollment courses affect both your high school transcript AND college transcript (GPAs, valedictorian status, etc.)
  • Dual Credit courses are more rigorous than typical high school courses; course requirements, assignments, and timeframes will reflect the demands of a college-level course.
  • Dual Credit students are held to the same standards as traditional college students. All students are expected to follow the Student Code of Conduct found in the Student Handbook.
  • Dual Credit students have access to all the information, services, and extra-curricular activities (excluding NJCAA sports) provided to the general student population.
  • Students taking dual enrollment classes must complete a final exam or a final project (depending on the requirements of the course).
  • If the student is taking a class for dual enrollment, during the high school day and taught by the high school instructor, students can withdraw from the “college” part of the course if necessary.
  • Don’t overload yourself…look at your schedule and priorities …school, work, sports, etc.
  • DACC’s academic calendar does not always match the high school calendars. On some days, you may be expected to come to campus for traditional dual credit courses when the high school is not in session.
  • Developmental courses do not qualify for dual credit.
