Dual Credit is a partnership between WKU’s Division of Extended Learning and Outreach (DELO) and area high schools to offer qualified students the opportunity to earn college credit as part of their high school curriculum.
Dual Credit courses are offered at the high school during regular school hours by WKU faculty or by high school teachers who meet all accreditation standards according to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
Courses offered through WKU Dual Credit are “real” college classes. Students taking dual credit courses are registered and enrolled at WKU as a “non-degree seeking student prior to high school graduation.” The grades earned in dual credit courses are the first college grades a student will receive. Whether they decide to attend WKU or another institution after high school, grades earned in dual credit courses will be a permanent part of student’s academic record. Please note that participation in Dual Credit does not guarantee admission to WKU as a “degree seeking freshman.”
