College Express Dual Credit

College Express Dual Credit

The College Express program offers dual credit for high school juniors and seniors in sixteen career/technical programs which traditionally lead to an Associate degree or certificate. College Express courses are offered daily on the DACC campus during a two-hour time block in the morning for District 118 and Middle College students and in the afternoon for county high school students. Students register for College Express courses during the traditional registration period at their high school.

Optimally, a high school student will enter College Express as a junior. By the time the student completes two years of College Express programming, he or she may have earned from 10-19 dual credits toward high school graduation and an Associate degree. There are limited personal expenses associated with College Express. Tuition, fees, books, and most transportation expenses are paid by their high school district. The financial benefits realized by College Express participants can be in excess of $1500, or the equivalent of an entire college semester.

College Express is the result of a partnership between DACC, Vermilion Vocational Education Delivery System (VVEDS), and area Illinois high school districts. For more information about the College Express program, students should contact their high school guidance counselor, the DACC Partnership for College & Career Success Program office, at 217-443-8582, or the VVEDS office, at 217-443-8742.
