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.
