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.

Eligibility

In general, courses are available to high school juniors and seniors with a 3.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale and have a recommendation from your high school counselor and/or principal. You should have the emotional maturity to complete rigorous collegiate level coursework which includes completing work on time, following detailed instructions, meeting deadlines, time management, self advocacy and ability to think critically.
