Dual Credit

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 who register for Dual Credit courses 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 many other institutions outside the state.

College of Western Idaho (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 including the General Education Academic Certificate.  Students earn 36 credits that transfer to any public college or university in Idaho.  CWI provides the opportunity for students to enroll in classes offered at any of our campus locations, as well as online or distance education classes. 

In addition to Dual Credit students may also receive Technical Competency Credit (TCC) at CWI. TCC is designed by high school and college instructors working together to provide a coordinated sequence of instruction. Students are able to receive college credit through articulation agreements between high schools and CWI technical programs.

TCC programs include, but are not limited to; Automotive, Information Technology, Welding, Diesel Technology, Dental Assisting, just to name a few. To find out which programs at your school are Technical Competency Credit contact your high school instructor.
