Both university transfer and career courses are included in this program. There is no limit on the number of credit hours a student may earn. However, students must meet with their High School Counselor to discuss the dual credit course options through their school.
For incoming transfer credit following articulation agreements, DACC is a participant in the Illinois Articulation Agreement. The Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI), a statewide agreement allows transfer of the completed Illinois General Education Core Curriculum between participating institutions. Completion of the transferable General Education Core Curriculum at any participating college or university in Illinois assures transferring students that lower-division general education requirements for an associate or bachelor's degree have been satisfied. This agreement is in effect for students entering an associate or baccalaureate degree-granting institution as a first-time freshman in summer 1998 (and thereafter). More information about the Illinois Articulation Initiative is available online at www.itransfer.org. If a DACC course is IAI approved, it is noted in the course description.
DACC also promotes and utilizes Transferology.com. Transferology is a nation-wide network designed to help students explore their college transfer options. Their goal is to save students time and money by providing a quick, intuitive way of getting their college transfer credit questions answered. Students can answer the question "Will my courses transfer?" by adding coursework, exams, and/or military learning experiences to see how many schools in the Transferology network have matching courses that may be awarded when they transfer. They can also find out what their options are for taking classes over the summer (or whenever) at another school to transfer back to their current school by using the "Find a Replacement Course" feature.
With endless possibilities, plan ahead for dual credit!
