Dual Credit/CTE

Dual credit is a statewide program for eligible high school students who want to explore college courses while receiving high school elective credit. In most cases, the college courses and books are FREE to students.

Students do not pay for tuition or textbooks during the regular fall and spring semester. They do pay for their own supplies, protective apparel, and tool sets, and they may be responsible for certain other fees where applicable.

To earn a certificate or associate degree from DACC, students will have to attend additional semesters or sessions following high school graduation and pay DACC tuition and fees. Financial assistance may be available for these sessions.

(Note: Not all DACC courses taken through the DCP program are transferable to other colleges and universities). Students should apply for DCP opportunities with a high school counselor. To be considered, they must meet the criteria agreed upon by their school district and DACC.
