Dual Credit and Dual Enrollment
for High School Students

Dual Credit Offerings

Mission:

The mission of the dual credit and dual enrollment program is to give high school students who attend a John A Logan district high school or a home school student who resides in the John A. Logan College district the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school.

Goals:

  • Explore career pathways
  • Get a head start on college by earning college credit
  • Build self-confidence and familiarity with the college environment which helps ease the transition from high school
  • Save money on tuition
  • Provide opportunities to participate in campus activities and events

What is Dual Credit?

Dual credit is an opportunity for high school juniors and seniors who are capable of meeting an increased challenge to earn free college credit through selected high school courses.

  1. Both high school and college credit is earned for dual credit courses.
  2. Dual credit classes may be taught at the high school by a qualified teacher (who is also a John A. Logan College faculty member).
  3. The high school determines whether a college course is offered for concurrent high school and college credit, according to the school’s policies and practices of their district.

What is Dual Enrollment?

High school juniors and seniors may also enroll in a college level course offered on the College’s main campus, at the DuQuoin and West Frankfort Extension Centers, on–line, and at other approved College sites.

  1. Students earn college credit exclusively. High school credit is not usually awarded.
  2. The College Catalog lists all the courses offered at John A. Logan College.
  3. The Class Schedule identifies the days of the week and the times each class is offered during a particular semester.
  4. Students may take day, evening, or on-line classes as approved by their high school. On-line classes are listed separately in the on-line section of the class schedule.
