Students are expected to perform at the college level and to honor all deadlines declared by the college or by the instructor. Freshmen and Sophomores should take all 3 sections of the TSI exam (Math, Reading and Writing); and must meet TSI Reading and Writing standards to participate in the Dual Credit program. Foreign Language is the one exception, which requires students to meet TSI Reading standards. Juniors and Seniors must meet TSI standards, or be exempt through SAT, ACT, or EOC scores. Waivers are also available with PSAT scores.

Dual Credit Academic Standards
:

The college cumulative GPA will be calculated at the completion of each semester. Students whose college cumulative GPA is below 2.0 will be suspended from taking additional dual credit classes for one long semester (Fall or Spring); however, a student may retake only the courses in which an ‘F’ or a ‘D’ has been earned during the semester of suspension. Students can be reinstated the following semester. After completing classes during the reinstated semester, if the semester GPA remains below 2.0, future participation in the Dual Credit program will be prohibited.

Students must earn a C or higher in Foreign Language Classes prior to moving to the next level.

Dual Credit Overload -- Taking More Than 2 Courses Per Semester:
Dual Credit students are limited to 2 dual credit courses per semester. Permission for additional courses will be granted if the following criteria have been met:

  • New Dual Credit Students (first semester): must have a cumulative high school GPA of an 85 average or higher.
  • Current Dual Credit Students: must have a cumulative college GPA of 3.0 or higher.
