Dual enrollment allows qualified high school students to earn college credit for taking designated college-level classes that may or may not count toward high school credit. Dual enrollment classes may be offered at area high schools, at career centers, via distance education, or on a State Technical College of Missouri campus.
State Technical College of Missouri will grant appropriate college credit to a degree-seeking student who has taken comparable classes through a dual enrollment program while enrolled in high school. For a student to receive State Technical College of Missouri credit, the Office of Admissions must receive an official college transcript from the college or university granting the credit. Required course equivalency will be evaluated on a class-by-class basis. For more information, please refer to the section on Transfer Credit.
State Technical College of Missouri also partners with local high schools to offer dual enrollment classes taught by State Technical College of Missouri instructors. In order to be eligible for dual enrollment courses, including career and technical education (CTE) courses, all prospective dual enrollment students must meet the same requirements for placement into individual courses, (e.g., English or mathematics) as those required of non-dual enrollment students.
