Dual credit courses are COLLEGE classes that are taught here at Vallivue High School. Here’s how it works. For $65 per credit, students can choose from a list of Vallivue High School courses that are ‘dually’ taught. This means that the teacher is teaching a curriculum that not only lines up with high school standards, but is also aligned with a college curriculum. Students taking these courses can receive 1 credit per semester on their high school transcript PLUS 3 to 5 credits on a college transcript for the same class. Vallivue students can graduate with a significant amount of college credits already started for a fraction of the cost by taking dual credit courses.
Vallivue High School offers the following dual credit courses:
ALL dual credit courses transfer to any college that accepts transfer credits. You can cross reference dual credit courses with your student’s college of preference to see how those credits transfer. Go to the admissions page of the college’s website and click on ‘transfer students’, then ‘transfer credits’. If the particular course isn’t listed, you can call the college admissions personnel for verification.
