Northwest Dual Credit Program
Through dual credit, high school students can earn college credit from Northwest Missouri State University while still in high school. Currently, all of these courses are taught at the home high school by high school faculty. We are piloting online course offerings taught by high school instructors.
To ensure an appropriate rigor for dual credit courses, the instructors and course content for dual credit must be approved by the subject matter department at Northwest Missouri State University.
Students must also meet certain ACT score requirements and grade point average requirements.
Research has identified dual credit as one factor that can aid in college success and completion of degree work. [University Continuing Education Association. (2006, June). Lifelong Learning Trends (9th ed.), p.30.]
