CTE Dual Credit

Career & Technical Education (CTE) Dual-Credit

CTE Dual Credit is all about getting College Credit while you are attending high school classes.

Dual Credit is a Student’s Choice

With the growing emphasis to encourage high school students to access college credit while in the high school, please keep in mind that not all dual credit opportunities are to the advantage of all students. Excessive credit that is not purposeful for degree pathway completion can negatively impact students that may be eligible for federal student aid. Please remind your students that CTE Dual Credit participation is an optional student choice!

CTE Dual Credit classes are taught at your high school or skills center and integrates academics with technical development to help prepare you for careers related to professional/technical occupations. High school students have the opportunity to get a jump start on their career by preparing for a college technical degree program while at their local high school.

Are interested in working in any of the following careers?

  • agriculture
  • applied science
  • business
  • engineering technology
  • health
  • information technology
  • mechanical, industrial or practical arts or trades

Earn free college credits. College tuition is waived in the CTE Dual Credit Program.

All CTE Dual Credit courses offer dual credit, meaning students earn high school and college credit for successfully completing the same class. You can earn both high school and community college credit (this is called dual credit) for completing select high school courses with a grade “B+” or better.

If you have questions, please call our office at 509.574.4609 or send us an e-mail.
