Dual Credit

Dual Credit is a program that allows qualified high school students (attending a participating high school) the opportunity to enroll in college-level courses.  Students receive both high school and college credit upon successful completion of the course.

There are two options for Dual Credit:

Kishwaukee Education Consortium (KEC) classes are offered in partnership with five area high schools: DeKalb HS, Genoa-Kingston HS, Hiawatha HS, Rochelle Township HS and Sycamore HS. These courses prepare students for an occupational program, that may not require further preparation beyond a two-year Associate of Applied Science degree to enter the workforce.

Academic Transfer courses are offered on the high school campus and may be transferable to a four-year university (students should check with the university to which they plan to transfer for course articulation). Dual Credit opportunities are currently available at DeKalb HS, Indian Creek HS, Paw Paw HS, Rochelle Township HS and Sycamore HS. Check with your high school counselor for course availability. 

Please discuss this opportunity with your high school guidance counselor, or contact:
