The Dual Credit program at Kent State University is designed to provide qualified high school students with the opportunity to enhance their high school education by earning college credit while they are still in the high school.
High school based dual credit are those courses offered through a collaborative agreement between Kent State University and a school district, taught by a qualified high school teacher on a high school campus, and earning a student both high school and college credit.
University based dual credit are those courses offered online that are taught by a University professor.
Upon successful completion of a dual credit course, students receive credit on their high school transcript and on their college transcript.
Students have the opportunity to experience the rigor of a college level course and can get an early start on completing their basic college courses. Kent State University courses will transfer to public colleges and universities in Ohio.
