Dual Credit

You take your high school courses seriously. So why not use your hard work to shave semesters—and some serious dollars—off your education. Earn college credit for what you’re already doing: taking challenging courses at your high school.

What is Dual Credit?

Dual credit classes are college credit-bearing classes taught by high school teachers, usually at your high school. These classes align with classes taught on STLCC campuses. This ensures you're getting a college-level experience that conveniently fits in your schedule.

Why Dual Credit?

Save Money Today and Tomorrow

Dual credit classes cost just $25 per credit hour. Even at highly-discounted rates, other programs cost around 60 percent more than our dual-credit program. But the real savings happen when you transfer the credits to a four-year university, saving hundreds of tuition dollars.

Earn Credits Toward Your Diploma and Degree

We partner with local high schools to offer certain high school classes for dual credit. This means you’re on track for graduation, while earning college credit from STLCC.

Start Here. Go Anywhere ...

When you choose STLCC, you choose credits that are designed to transfer. So when you move on to another college or university, you can trust the work you’ve put in will count. Learn more about Missouri's CORE 42 Program for classes that are transferable, guaranteed.

Who Can Apply?

To participate in the dual-credit program, you must demonstrate you’re ready for college classes. We look for students who are high school:

  • Seniors and juniors with a 2.5 GPA or higher
  • Sophomores with a 3.0 GPA or higher

To enroll, you'll need to receive permission from one of your school’s administrators and a parent or guardian. You must also meet all course prerequisites.

Cost of Dual Credit

Dual credit courses cost $25 per credit hour.

Students who qualify for our Jumpstart Scholarship can take up to 6 credit hours of dual credit each semester for free. The Jumpstart Scholarship is automatically awarded to students who have a 2.6 GPA or higher and who are free/reduced lunch eligible.

Enrolling in Dual Credit

Follow these steps to get set up for your first semester as a dual-credit student:

  1. Apply at stlcc.edu/apply
  2. Find your STLCC A# - Your A# will arrive via email shortly after submitting your STLCC application
  3. Submit your class request - During our registration window, fill out the Dual Credit Class Request form to ensure you're registered in your classes. Our team will register you in your classes and send you a confirmation email when registration is complete.
  4. Complete the Parent/Guardian Authorization. An approval email will be sent to your parent/guardian as soon as you submit your class request form. Your parent must complete the approval form before you can be registered for dual credit.
  5. Pay for your classes - After the registration window closes, pay for your classes in full by cash, check or credit card at the Cashier’s Office on campus or online through Banner Self-Service.
