GENERAL INFO

Many of the courses offered at the Chesterfield Career & Technical Center give students the opportunity to receive Dual Enrollment credit through the Virginia Community College System. It is important that parents and students understand the eligibility requirements and that ALL requirements are met before May 31, 2017 in order to qualify for Dual Enrollment (except for Medical Biotech and Precision Machining, which have a deadline of April 27, 2017 - see next paragraph). For a list of current programs that offer Dual Enrollment credit, please click here.

Two of our courses require students to meet Dual Enrollment eligibility requirements in order to take the class. These requirements must be met no later than April 27, 2017. Those two courses are Medical Biotechnologies and Precision Machining Technology. Two of our other courses allow students to get Dual Enrollment credit through ECPI and do not require eligibility through VCCS. Those two courses are Criminal Justice and Homeland Security.

Students who wish to qualify for Dual Enrollment credit must a) apply online through the Virginia Community College System and b) meet specific testing requirements. Specific information about how to apply online and meet testing requirements will be handed out to students in Spring 2017.

NOTE: Dual-enrolled students who earn a final grade lower than a C in a VCCS course could experience: nontransferrable college credits, academic probation at VCCS schools, and negative impact on federal financial aid eligibility.

Note about PSAT Scores

College Board released the redesigned PSAT in 2015. State Board approved score cuts for this new version in January 2016.

As a result of the policy change, all PSAT scores resulting from an older version of the test will need to use the previous scores to qualify for a placement test exemption. The below crosswalk specifies these cut scores.
