Dual Credit classes are available to high school juniors and seniors. These classes offer students college credit as well as high school credit as opposed to regular classes, which only offer students high school credit.

“I’ve taken both regular and dual credit classes,” senior Marissa Mireles said. “I would say the main difference is the amount of work offered in each class. Dual credit offers college level work while regular classes offer high school level work.”

Dual Credit classes are graded on a 6.0 scale while regular classes are graded on a 4.0 scale. This can affect students’ GPAs.

“I would recommend that students take dual credit classes because of the credit,” social studies teacher Kathryn Colvin said. “This is my first year teaching it, and I think that it is a beneficial option to take.”

Compared to regular classes, dual credit challenges students into accomplishing more work and  gaining better study habits senior Brenda Carreon said.

“Dual credit challenges the mind of students,” Carreon said. “We get more work to keep us within the standards beyond high school and  it challenges our capability to balance reality and school.”

Unlike regular classes, dual credit classes save students money in the long run by letting them take the classes in high school for a more affordable price.

“It is an opportunity that cannot be passed,” Carreon said. “Dual credit classes save so much money, and they really give people an advantage of seeing what college is really like.”
