The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Dual Credit Department’s work helping high school students earn college credit has been put in a national spotlight. In June, CWI was included as a highlight in an electronic newsletter from College Board, which is the not-for-profit organization that oversees the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP).
