Dual credit allows qualified high school students to earn high school and college credit simultaneously for taking designated college-level classes. Dual credit classes may be offered at area high schools, at career centers, via distance education, or on a State Technical College of Missouri campus.
State Technical College of Missouri will grant appropriate college credit to a degree-seeking student who has taken comparable classes through a dual credit program while enrolled in high school. For a student to receive State Technical College of Missouri credit, the Office of Admissions must receive an official college transcript from the college or university granting the credit. Required course equivalency will be evaluated on a class-by-class basis. For more information, please refer to the section on Transfer Credit.
State Technical College of Missouri also partners with local high schools to offer dual credit classes taught by high school instructors who meet the required qualifications under State Technical College of Missouri supervision. In order to be eligible for dual credit courses, including career and technical education (CTE) courses, all prospective dual credit students must meet the same requirements for placement into individual courses, (e.g., English or mathematics) as those required of non-dual credit students.
