Dual Credit

Dual Credit for High School Teachers

Program Overview

The Dual Credit Program allows Lewis-Clark State College and area high schools the opportunity to work together to offer college courses to high school students in an effort to provide them an early start on their college academic goals. The program’s success is based on the partnership between qualified high school instructors and our various academic divisions.

Each approved dual credit instructor is paired with a Lewis-Clark State College faculty member (liaison) who will provide guidance and support in curriculum alignment, teaching strategies, academic resources, etc. The LCSC faculty liaison will also conduct classroom visits and a course evaluations each year to ensure program quality and course alignment. The program promotes campus visits and encourages LCSC faculty to participate as guest lecturers in the high school classrooms.

Instructor Application Process

If you would like to teach a college-level class to high school students, please review the Dual Credit Instructor Application Process to learn how you can become a dual credit instructor. Courses taught at the high school must be the same as courses taught at Lewis-Clark State College, using the same textbook or a textbook approved by the division chair and/or faculty liaison.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law designed to protect the privacy of education records and is enforced by the Family Policy Compliance Office of the U.S. Department of Education (FPCO). Essentially, the act states that 1) "students" must be permitted to inspect their own "education records" and 2) "school officials" may not disclose personally identifiable information about a student without written permission from the student.

The Dual Credit Registration Form includes an information release statement. Therefore, by signing the form, students authorize school officials to disclose "academic and financial records" to the parents/guardians noted on the application.
