Dual Credit - Students and Parents

Benefits

  • Earn college credit at a much reduced rate.
  • Take one class that counts for both high school and college credit.
  • Graduate from high school with a high school diploma and college credit.
  • Experience a college-level course while still in high school and develop the skills needed to be successful in college.
  • Gain incentive to continue your education beyond high school.

Cost and Payment Information

  • 2012-13 tuition is $65 per credit. Most courses are three to four credits, so a three-credit course will cost $195. Financial Aid is not available to students enrolling in dual credit courses, however, need-based scholarships are available. For more information, please contact the Dual Credit office at 208.562.3371.
  • There is no application fee.

Transferability

CWI delivers college credit instruction through its memorandum of understanding with the College of Southern Idaho (CSI). CSI is accredited through The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCUU). Credits earned at CWI appear on CSI transcripts and are transferable to Idaho colleges and universities, and most other institutions outside the state. Colleges and universities outside the state of Idaho and private institutions within the state are not bound by the same credit transfer policy, so you should always check institutional transfer polices before registering for Dual Credit coursework.

Eligibility Criteria

Students should:

  • Be at least 16 years old or have successfully completed at least one-half of the high school graduation requirements as certified by the local school district
  • Have a minimum 2.0 GPA
  • Have met the prerequisites of a course or have instructor permission
  • Have permission of high school representative
  • Have permission of parent/guardian

Before You Enroll

  • Dual credit courses require extra effort and personal responsibility. A dual credit course may be more rigorous than other courses you’ve taken in high school and the expectation will be that you participate at the same level as a regular college student. It is important to note that most classes require up to two hours of out-of-class study for every one hour of classroom time.
  • As a college student, you are expected to conduct yourself as a responsible adult. This includes, but is not limited to, attending class, seeking academic help, and addressing any problems you may have directly with your instructors. Rights and responsibilities of CWI students are outlined in the CWI Student Handbook.
  • All grades will becomes part of your permanent college transcript and will be calculated into your college GPA.
  • Dual credit students are responsible for requesting a withdrawal if they transfer out of a class for which they registered for credit. Failure to do so will result in a failing grade.

Be sure that this opportunity for a head start on a college education leads to an academic record that gives you an advantage when you enroll in college after high school graduation. If you have any questions, please call the Dual Credit Office at 208.562.3371.
