Career and Technical Education (CTE) Dual Credit courses allow students to earn both high school and college credit by completing college level CTE courses. See chart to the right!
These courses articulate directly with local college Professional and Technical certificate and degree programs and teach college level curriculum. Students obtain college credit by registering for CTE Dual Credit and earning a grade of "B" or higher in the course.
Many of these classes earn additional high school school credit, because it is a college-level course at OC.
