State Tech dual credit courses are taught in the high school or career center, by college-approved high school instructors, for which students receive both college and high school credit. State Tech dual enrollment courses are taught in the high school, on-campus, online, or via interactive television courses (ITV) by State Tech full-time or adjunct instructors, for which students receive college credit and may also receive high school credit.
State Tech adheres to Missouri Coordinating Board for Higher Education requirements for participation in the dual credit/dual enrollment program. Generally, students in grades 9-12 must have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.00 or higher on a 4.0 scale.

Courses may be added throughout the registration period only. Students may withdraw from a class during the first three quarters of the class. For example, if the course is 16-weeks, students can withdraw up to and including Week 12. Withdrawal during this time will be recorded on the transcript as “WD”. After that time has elapsed, withdrawals are not allowed, and instructors will assign a letter grades. Withdrawal dates can be found by clicking on Financial Refund and Add/Drop Dates menu item at the bottom right of the Financial Aid Office website.
In order to be eligible to receive a 100% refund, courses must be dropped prior to five days after the start of the class. If a course is dropped after the 100% full refund date, the student is responsible for 100% of tuition and fees.
Every school district has different policies in place concerning dual credit/dual enrollment. Students should consult with their counselor or principal before dropping any State Tech courses to ensure that they will still be on track to graduate.
Students should remember they are enrolled at State Tech through the Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Program and are considered college students. As such, dual credit/dual enrollment students are expected to take responsibility for their education. These responsibilities include payment of fees, meeting course and State Tech deadlines, and following the College’s rules and regulations found in the Student Handbook.
Upon the completion of a dual enrollment or dual credit course(s), the instructor of the course will assign an official final grade. Grades are assigned based on a using a 0.0 — 4.0 GPA scale F= 0.0- A=4.0). The official/final grade a student earned in a dual credit or dual enrollment course is part of the student’s permanent State Tech college record and cannot be deleted or dropped. After all the official/final course grades have been posted to the student’s transcript, they will be available on MyTech.
College credit earned at State Tech through the Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Program may be transferable to other post-secondary institutions according to the post-secondary institution’s transfer policy. This is to say, not all State Tech dual credit/dual enrollment courses are transferable. Students are encouraged to contact the Director of Admissions or Registrar at the college or university of their choice for questions regarding acceptance and transferability of State Tech dual credit/dual enrollment courses.
To request a State Tech transcript to send to another post-secondary institution, students must complete a Transcript Request Form and submit to the Registrar. Transcripts will not be issued until the student’s financial obligations to State Tech are paid in full.
According to FERPA (Family Educational Rights Privacy Act), high schools accepting college credit for high school credit have a legitimate educational interest in obtaining certain information about students that parents/legal guardians may not. Therefore, post-secondary institutions including State Tech can share information with the high school based on legitimate educational interest but it may not do so with the parents/legal guardians of the high school students enrolled as a dual credit/dual enrolled student.
In other words, because the parent has privacy rights at the high school, the parent can still approach high school teachers and counselors about their student’s progress in dual credit/dual enrollment course(s). However, State Tech faculty and staff who are approached by the parents/legal guardian of their high school student should refer the parents back to the high school for any and all information.
Students can grant access to other individuals to discuss a student’s academic and/or financial records with college personnel. Students can log into myTech and
After completing your form, please allow up to 48 hours before the rights are granted and they receive the login to myTech.
