Dual credit allows high school students to simultaneously earn credit toward a high school diploma and a post-secondary degree or certificate. Lewis-Clark State College works closely with high schools to deliver college courses representative of those offered on the college campus. Credits earned in a dual credit course become part of the student’s permanent college record.
Courses offered through the Lewis-Clark State College’s Dual Credit Program reflect the pedagogical, theoretical, and philosophical orientation of the sponsoring faculty and/or academic department. Instructors teaching courses through the Dual Credit Program must meet the academic requirements for faculty and instructors teaching in post-secondary institutions as stipulated by the respective academic departments. Academic qualifications vary depending on the discipline, meaning each department sets its own standards for selecting dual credit affiliates.
