Columbia Area Career Center offers multiple dual credit courses taught by teachers who have the necessary credentials to be approved as adjunct lecturers by the partner college. For each course the curriculum has been reviewed and is equivalent to a corresponding college-level course, allowing students to simultaneously earn high school and college credit. Unlike AP and PLTW courses, no end-of-course test score is required to earn credit. The credits earned and the grade received in the class appear on both the high school and college transcripts.
Note: Dual enrollment refers to high school students who enroll in a college course that is taught by college instructors.
