Dual Credit Courses

High School & College Credit
Dual credit allows you to earn college credit while in high school. Take select courses at WCJC and earn credit for both college and high school. You may be able to take these classes on your high school campus, at a WCJC campus or online. WCJC offers a wide range of dual credit courses, including core curriculum, technical program requirements, and foreign language classes. However, remedial and developmental courses are not available to dual credit students.

College Credit Only

Concurrent enrollment lets high school students take courses at WCJC for college credit only before graduating high school. These courses, and the grades earned, will become a permanent part of your college transcript, setting a strong foundation for your future academic endeavors. Explore all of our classes to determine if concurrent enrollment is right for you.
