Dual Credit Courses
Note: Courses vary by school
Three courses--College Credit English, Technical English, and College Algebra--are exclusive dual credit courses, meaning that students must have a qualifying placement score and/or appropriate unweighted GPA prior to enrollment in the R7 course. If the placement score is the ACT or Accuplacer test, students must make arrangements to take the test and attach the results to the dual credit course application. Students who do not meet the qualifying score or GPA requirement will be enrolled in a different but appropriate course.
