The Missouri Valley College Dual Credit Program is designed to give college-bound students an opportunity to gain college credit for courses taken while they are in high school. Missouri Valley College dual credit courses are available at a significantly discounted tuition rate.
Students pay $80 per credit hour for their dual credit courses.
Missouri Valley College is a fully accredited college so credits should transfer simply. Students should contact the college they plan to attend to verify that credits will be accepted. Some colleges have links on their website that allow one to determine if credits will transfer, or students may contact the college's registrar's office and ask about dual credit transfers.
