Help your high school student get a jump start on earning college credits with Lake Land College’s Dual Credit Program! 

This fall, the Lake Land College Dual Credit Program will host various parent and student information nights throughout the LLC district. The information nights are open to parents of and students who are high school sophomores, juniors and seniors. 

“Sometimes college can be intimidating, costly or overwhelming, but for high school students throughout the Lake Land College district, they can get a taste of college without ever leaving their high school classrooms,” said Brent Todd, director of Dual Credit.

The Lake Land College Dual Credit Program offers eligible high school juniors and seniors the chance to enroll in college-level courses while earning both high school and college credit, tuition free. Courses are taught by a high school teacher who is qualified to instruct college-level classes, during the regular high school day at the high school’s facilities.

During the information nights, parents and students will learn about opportunities at district high schools, types of courses offered, transfer information and costs associated with dual credit classes. 

The information nights will be held during the following times:

 

Tuesday, Nov. 12 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in room 201 at the Kluthe Center, 1204 Network Center Blvd., Effingham. 

Thursday, Nov. 14 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. in Webb Hall, room 081 on the Lake Land College campus, 5001 Lake Land Blvd., Mattoon. 

Tuesday, Nov. 19 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Eastern Region Center, 224 South Sixth Street, Marshall

Thursday, Nov. 21 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the Western Region Center, 600 East 1st St. in Pana. 

To enroll in dual credit courses, students must be juniors or seniors and initially have a high school grade point average equivalent of a C to enroll.  Once a student has taken at least one dual credit course, he/she must maintain an LLC grade point average of 2.0 to continue enrollment.
