Dual Credit for High School Students

The Missouri Valley College Dual Credit / Dual Enrollment Program is designed to give college-bound students an opportunity to gain college credit for courses taken while still in high school. Missouri Valley College courses are available at a significantly discounted tuition rate.

You pay $80 per credit hour for their dual credit / dual enrollment courses.

Missouri Valley College is a fully accredited college, so credits should transfer simply. Contact the college you plan to attend to verify that credits will be accepted.


Benefits of Dual Credit / Dual Enrollment Classes

  • Complete traditional college core curriculum requirements while you are still in high school, thus shortening the amount of time needed to earn a college degree
  • Earn college credit at a significantly discounted rate
  • Take classes in the familiar setting of your high school


Availability of Classes

Courses are offered four ways:

  • Dual credit courses are offered at the student’s own high school taught by approved high school teachers and (on a limited basis) through I-TV (interactive television).
  • Dual enrollment courses are offered on the Missouri Valley College campus and online.
