Together, by offering dual credit classes, we can help high school students jumpstart their college careers and save money on their future degrees.
Benefits of Dual Credit
Your high school students can earn college credits – while also earning credit toward high school graduation – in many unique career clusters and a variety of credentials.
Benefits for students include:
- Saving money in pursuit of their college degree.
- Enabling them to potentially take fewer credits each semester of college.
- Earning college credits toward an NWTC certificate, technical diploma, or associate degree; or the potential of transferring to another college or university.
- Experiencing college level coursework and learning how to navigate a syllabus, college assignments, papers, and exams.
- Experiencing Blackboard, an online learning management system.
- Increasing the likelihood of pursuing a college education.
Types of Dual Credit
NWTC partners with K12 school districts to provide multiple ways for high school students to get a jumpstart on their college career.
