Earn college credit while attending high school
The purpose of dual credit shall be to promote enrichment and advanced learning opportunities for the students of Marshfield High School. This will enable junior and senior students of MHS the opportunity to receive both high school and college credit for classes taken through agreements approved by the Marshfield School District and individual colleges and universities. Dual credit classes that are offered through MHS will be at the expense of the student.
1. Students must meet the entrance or pre-requisite requirements of the college granting credit and the Missouri Coordinating Board for High Education.
2. Students must have the approval of the Marshfield High School principal.
3. Students must have the approval of parents or guardians.
4. Students are responsible for paying course tuition and any accompanying fees.
College Credit Transfer:
Marshfield High School will not be held responsible for the transfer of college credit. The transfer of college credit rests with the receiving institution. Marshfield High School cannot guarantee transfer of credit for another institution. It is the student’s responsibility to research if and how credits will transfer from one institution to another.
To aid in helping your determine if your credit will transfer, the counseling department has recorded a screen cast demonstrating how to check transfer equivalencies at a couple of universities. You can find that video at the following link: https://goo.gl/vniXjt
