Dual Credit and Dual Enrollment for High School Students

Dual Credit and Dual Enrollment Form – Spring 2022

Mission:

The mission of the dual credit and dual enrollment program is to give high school students who attend a John A Logan district high school or a home school student who resides in the John A. Logan College district the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school.

Goals:

Dual Credit and Dual Enrollment Courses

Enrollment in dual credit and/or dual enrollment courses is limited to students attending a John A. Logan College district public or private school, and homeschooled students residing in the district. Students must be juniors or seniors or complete the additional requirements for sophomores. Dual credit and dual enrollment definitions are as follows and in accordance with ICCB rules:Dual Credit – An instructional arrangement where an academically qualified student currently enrolled in high school enrolls in a college-level course and, upon successful course completion, concurrently earns both college credit and high school credit.Dual Enrollment – An academically qualified student who is still enrolled in high school also enrolls in a college level course at the community college. Upon successful course completion, the student exclusively earns college credit. No high school credits are earned.

Eligible high school students who desire to enroll in dual credit and/or dual enrollment classes for college credit must: (1) complete a dual credit/dual enrollment form each semester signed by the high school principal or guidance counselor, (2) attach a copy of high school transcripts, and (3) take the appropriate placement tests.

High school students enrolled in dual credit/dual enrollment courses must follow the same course enrollment and withdrawal policies as post-secondary students.

  1. Location
    Dual credit classes are generally offered at the high school and are taught by college qualified high school instructors. High school and college credit are awarded for these courses. Classes taught at JALC, its extension centers, and on-line may be dual credit (receiving both college and high school credit) or dual enrollment (receiving only college credit).
  2. Tuition
    Students enrolling in dual credit taught at their high school will have tuition and fees waived. Students enrolling in dual credit or dual enrollment classes taught at JALC, its extension centers, or on-line will pay all fees—tuition is waived for 8 credit hours each semester. Students wishing to enroll for additional course hours beyond those for which tuition is waived shall be required to pay all tuition and fees associated with the course(s).
