Dual Credit Program

Dual Credit is a course of study allowing high school students to gain knowledge and skills through a sequence of both academic and CTE courses, preparing students for lifelong learning.

The SCC Dual Credit program is a partnership with all 12 local high schools. This partnership enables high school students to begin earning college credit while simultaneously earning high school credit, all while within their own high school environment.

Students must meet the placement testing requirements listed here in order to take Dual Credit classes.

All state laws, ICCB regulations, accreditation standards, specified by the Higher Learning Commission, and local college policies, that apply to courses, instructional procedures and academic standards at the college apply to college-level courses offered by the college on campus, at off-campus sites, and at secondary schools. These policies, regulations, instructional procedures and academic standards apply to students, faculty and staff associated with these courses.

Shawnee Community College Adheres to the Administrative Rules Set by the Illinois Community College Board in section 1401.507
