Dual Credit Opportunities
Dual credit enrollment includes a variety of programs through which Marion High School students are enrolled simultaneously in both high school and college to earn both high school and college credit. These programs make college more affordable for families and introduce students to higher level coursework before starting college.
Wisconsin currently offers courses through the Early College Credit Program. The program allows Wisconsin public and private high school students to take one or more courses at an institution of higher education for high school and/or college credit. Marion High School will pay for these credits through Start College Now.
College Credit can be earned at Marion High School by three ways:
Transcripted Credit Classes through a Technical College
CAPP Classes offered through a UW School
Advanced Placement (AP) Tests

Advanced Placement (AP) Tests
The UW Board of Regents policy requires all UW System institutions to grant credit for scores of 3 and above on College Board Advanced Placement Exams. Each campus will determine whether course equivalent credit or credit in the major should be granted and which AP scores are required to grant credit for those purposes. These credits can allow students to save college tuition, study abroad, or secure a second major.
Through the ERVING Network, Marion High School currently offers AP testing for the following classes:
AP Calculus AB
BENEFITS OF TAKING AP TESTS
Earn College Credits: By scoring successfully on the related AP Exam, you can save on college expenses: most colleges and universities nationwide offer college credit, advanced placement, or both, for qualifying AP Exam scores.
Skip Introductory Classes: If you already know your preferred college major, earning a qualifying score on the AP Exam can help you advance and avoid required introductory courses – so you can move directly into upper-level classes and focus on the work that interests you most. Even taking an AP Exam unrelated to your major place you beyond your college’s general education requirements.
Build College Skills: Taking an AP course builds the skills you'll need throughout your college years. You give your mind a rigorous workout while polishing up your time management and study skills.
