Dual Credit

Dual Credit Information for LCSC Faculty

The Dual Credit Program works closely with area high schools to deliver college courses representative of those offered on the college campus. 

High school instructors teaching courses through the Dual Credit Program must meet the academic requirements for faculty teaching at LCSC as stipulated by the respective academic divisions. Academic qualifications vary depending on the discipline, meaning each department sets its own standards for selecting dual credit affiliates.

Expectations

LCSC faculty who partner with high school teachers to develop dual credit courses delivered on a high school campus are the foundation of the Dual Credit Program. It is through their curriculum oversight, mentoring, and support that program quality and academic rigor are maintained at a college level.

College faculty, high school faculty, and courses offered for dual credit must comply with the Idaho State Board of Education standards that govern Dual Credit Programs. LCSC faculty and high school faculty must also have the approval of their administration before engaging in any dual credit partnerships.
