Dual Credit At DACC

Dual Credit At DACC

What is Dual Credit?

At Danville Area Community College, Dual Credit programs allow high school students to take college-level courses and receive college and high school credits. The completed courses and grades are recorded on both the high school transcript and college transcript. The courses must be approved by the high school in advance.

What is Dual Enrollment? (Hint…It is NOT the same as Dual Credit.)

In some instances, the high school prefers not to count the college credit earned as high school credit. Therefore the credit will not appear on the high school transcript. The credit earned will be for college credit only. With Dual Enrollment/College Credit Only, the College does not apply a discount and the student is responsible for 100% of the tuition and fees. Students must also have a “High School Permission for Enrollment at DACC” form completed before enrolling in a Dual Enrollment course.
