These courses will be accessible to high school students across public and private schools in Kentucky.Don’t miss this incredible opportunity to be a part of Simmons College of Kentucky’s Dual Credit Program and embark on a transformative educational journey that integrates academic excellence and social awareness.

What is Dual Credit? 

Dual credit programs are cost-effective ways for students to earn college credit while in high school, and studies show they increase college enrollment, on-time graduation, and help expose students to career possibilities. 


Dual Credit Admissions 

To participate in a dual credit program, high school students must have an unweighted, cumulative high school GPA of 2.5. Once admitted, they must meet our college’s minimum GPA requirement to remain enrolled. To take dual credit courses, they must meet a course’s prerequisites also. 


Why Dual Credit Is a Priority?

Studies show that dual credit programs increase the chances of college enrollment, on-time graduation, as well as reducing college costs. Dual credit programs also expose students to many career possibilities prior to college, helping refine major and degree program selection. 

Application for the Spring 2024 · Coming Soon in October!
