Double the Credit without Doubling the Time and Money
Concurrent enrollment programs that provide high school students college credit opportunities at the same time they are earning high school credits. Double the Credit without Doubling the Time and Money at College of Western Idaho (CWI).
CWI recognizes the nationwide movement toward providing high school students of outstanding academic achievement and/or inclination the opportunity to earn college credit toward an undergraduate degree prior to graduation. CWI offers two programs that provide college-level credit to high school students.
Dual Credit programs are a collaborative partnership between Idaho’s colleges/universities and high schools to deliver college-level courses to high school students. Dual credit programs give these students the opportunity to receive both high school and college credits for pre-approved courses. Students receive a letter grade based on work completed during the duration of the class which will be reflected on a college transcript. Credits are transferable to Idaho colleges and universities, and most other institutions outside the state.
CWI’s Dual Credit focus is to provide high school students with classes that meet the general education requirements for students enrolling in academic, degree-seeking programs. CWI also provides the opportunity for students to enroll in classes offered at any of our campus locations, as well as on-line or distance education classes.
