Dual Credit (Credit by Assessment)

Credit by assessment is often a departmental challenge assessment (cognate or performance) that allows high school students to demonstrate prior learning relevant to a particular body of knowledge. The demonstration of proficiency of knowledge of the learning outcomes for a particular college-level course is validated by the college faculty, and upon enrollment of the student into the particular college, the student is awarded "transfer" credit by the college faculty. All academic credit by examination requests must be made to the division dean and approved by the Vice president for Academic Affairs. To be eligible for consideration for credit by examination, a student must register for the particular course and attend the first day of class. All examination requirements must be completed as designated by the division.

The high school career technical instructors and Walters State Community College instructors review course materials to determine duplicative course outcomes and then develop articulation agreements and policies which can result in opportunities for high school students to receive college credit. These agreements allow 11th and 12th grade high school students to take a college level assessment for free credit or, in some instances, students can earn free credit for nationally recognized certificates.

Dual Credit Information

The Dual Credit Program is funded under the Carl D. Perkins Career and Technical Education Act of 2006.
