Prepare for your future…

Dual credit is a program that provides eligible high school students an excellent opportunity to earn both high school and university credit for classes taken through the University of Idaho.

Dual credit also provides a wider range of course options for high school students. Courses may be taught at the high school campus, the university campus, or online depending on the arrangements made with the high school. Through this program, dual credit students can accumulate college credits prior to entering college that will help them graduate early or on time.

To be eligible to take dual credit courses delivered on a high school campus, students must be academically prepared for the demands of college-level coursework and have junior status. Students requesting an exception must submit a petition to the high school principal’s office. Petitions will be reviewed by the high school counselor, high school teacher of record, and university instructor of record.
