Dual Credit

Dual Credit Program at Lake Land College

Lake Land College offers academic and occupational, college-level courses to qualified high school students in order to extend access to affordable higher education to a larger percentage of district residents, stimulate and challenge students in their junior and senior years of high school, and to give students advanced college placement when entering the colleges of their choice. These courses are important links in the transition from one educational experience to another and into careers.


Dual Credit. Courses offered at our partner high schools that are taught by qualified high school teachers in which students receive both high school and college credit are called dual credit courses.

Dual Enrollment. In some cases high school students enroll in courses on the Lake Land College campus, at an extension center, or online. This is dual enrollment. High school students who wish to enroll at Lake Land College as dual enrollment students should follow the enrollment procedures for typical (non-dual) Lake Land College students rather than through the Dual Credit Program. In some cases, the secondary school may grant high school credit for dual enrollment courses. This decision is made solely by the secondary school administration.


How much does the Dual Credit Program cost?

Students enrolled in dual credit courses pay no tuition or fees to Lake Land College. That means you can earn college credit for free!

In contrast, students enrolled in courses on campus, at an extension center, or online will pay regular Lake Land College tuition and fees. In some cases, the high school may cover the cost of tuition and fees for students taking these courses. Contact the dual credit coordinator at your high school to find out if your school covers costs associated with these courses.
