Dual Credit

You take your high school courses seriously. So why not use your hard work to shave semesters—and some serious dollars—off of 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 your schedule.

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.

Dual credit courses cost $25 per credit hour.

Jump Start Scholarship

Students who qualify for our Jump Start Scholarship can take up to six credit hours of dual credit each semester for free.

The Jump Start scholarship is automatically awarded to registered students who have a 2.6 GPA or higher and are free/reduced lunch-eligible.

Dual Credit / Dual Enrollment Scholarship (STLCC)

Limited funding is available through the STLCC Foundation to support high school students participating in dual credit/enrollment programs. The funding purpose is to expand opportunities for area high school students to take advantage of high-quality college courses. Students are encouraged to submit applications as soon as need is identified. Funding is not guaranteed, and funding cannot be used for courses and fees that would normally be covered by the school district.

Students must be able to demonstrate financial need by meeting the qualifications for free/reduced lunch status. Students who fall into this category will already be eligible for six credit hours of dual credit coursework through the College’s Jump Start to College Scholarship. As such, students should not use this application to request funding for dual credit coursework under six total credit hours.

Apply for the Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Scholarship (STLCC)

Dual Credit / Dual Enrollment Scholarship (MDHEWD)

Organized by Missouri's Department of Higher Education and Workforce Development, the Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Scholarship covers tuition and fees for high school students taking dual credit or dual enrollment coursework from an approved provider. Changes to the Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Scholarship, including changes to the eligibility criteria, will be effective beginning with the fall 2022 semester.

View eligibility and application information

Please check with any prospective colleges and universities to determine if/how dual credit coursework may impact your financial aid as each institution determines its own policies. Financial aid includes all grants, scholarships, and loans. 

A+ Funds (State of Missouri Scholarship)

Dual credit coursework taken at STLCC does not count toward the 105% calculation used by the State of Missouri in determining A+ scholarship eligibility. However, while the hours are not counted in the calculation of 105% for eligibility, eligible courses would be counted as attempted hours toward program completion. Learn more about the A+ Scholarship Program

Federal Financial Aid

Title IV federal funding guidelines require that financial aid recipients make Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to be eligible for federal financial aid. Each institution makes its own policies regarding whether dual credit coursework is included in satisfactory academic progress calculations. At STLCC, dual credit coursework is not considered in satisfactory academic progress calculations. However, while the hours are not counted in the GPA and completion calculations, eligible courses would be counted as attempted hours toward program completion.

Review our Dual Credit Student Handbook for more information about course prerequisites, student resources and College policies.
