Dual credit is the term given to courses in which high school students have the opportunity to earn both high school and college credits simultaneously. Dual credit courses are taught by high school faculty, adjunct college faculty or college faculty either at the high school, at the college or university, or sometimes through online courses or distance education. Dual credit is offered by both state and independent (private, regionally accredited) colleges and universities.

Dual Credit Recognition

The dual credit ceremony recognized schools by the percentage of their entire student population (grades 9-12) earning dual credit in 2015-2016. This was an unduplicated student count pulled from the course completion data submitted by schools. The categories were as follows: Gold Level 75% or higher, Silver Level 50% - 74%, Bronze Level 30-49%.

Congratulations to 130 Indiana schools that achieved a minimum of a 30% success rate. The Indiana Department of Education honored these schools on November 6, 2017 in the Indiana Statehouse Atrium.
