Dual Credit at High Schools
Southeastern Illinois College offers a number of classes for dual credit that are taught at the high schools by the high school teachers. These classes are specific courses that have been articulated for dual credit. When a course is articulated for dual credit, that means that both the college faculty member and the high school instructor have agreed that the content of the college course matches that of the high school course. The college course syllabus is used by the high school instructor, who ensures that all college course objectives will be met as they teach the high school course. When this process of articulation has taken place, then the student receives both high school and college credit for the course. Tuition and fees are NOT charged for these classes.
Many members of the 2011-12 Hardin Co. WYSE Team took advantage of dual credit opportunities offered at their high school.
Southeastern has courses articulated for dual credit at all of its in-district high schools; however, the courses articulated for dual credit vary from high school to high school. Most articulated classes are in the career and technical education areas, such as computer technology, business or the industrial arts areas. However, there are a few baccalaureate transfer courses that have been articulated for dual credit, such as history, biology, English, music and physical education.
