UNM-VC offers chance to earn college credit in high school

 

Valencia County News Bulletin: The majority of students in UNM-VC's dual enrollment program are from Valencia County high schools, Gallegos-Logan said, but the program does serve students as far away as Mountainair, Moriarty, Socorro and Alamo.

 

"Dual enrollment lets students start earning the academic credits they would normally take in their first two years of college," Gallegos-Logan said.

 

There is a minimum ACT or SAT score for admission into the math and English dual enrollment program. If a student has not taken either of those standardized tests or did not score high enough, he or she can take a placement exam. For example, an ACT score of 19 to 25 or a placement test score of 78 to 100 will place a student in the university's English 101 course.


Students get college credits from UNM and since the university is fully accredited, the credits earned can be transferred to another school."

Wisconsin Student Course Options

Career and Technical Education
Pamela Schield's insight:

Course Options is new this fall in Wisconsin public school districts and allows students to attend up to two courses at a time in a variety of educational institutions (another district, the University of Wisconsin System, technical colleges, nonprofit institutions of higher education, and more). The resident district pays the cost. The only caveat, a school district may deny an application if the requested course does not satisfy a high school graduation requirement or does not conform to the student’s academic and career plan.

More students (MN) go for high school-college twofer

More students (MN) go for high school-college twofer | Dual credit | Scoop.it

Programs formerly for the A+ students are being made more widely available.

 

College-level courses in Minnesota high schools used to be reserved for the top ranks of students, but that's changing as more students seek to cash in on programs that will save them on tuition bills later.

 

School - College Partnership

 

This week, Irondale High School in New Brighton is showing off a new partnership with Anoka-Ramsey Community College that offers students "the opportunity to earn a two-year associate degree for free -- all while still enrolled in high school."

 

With its new Early College program, Irondale will target the academic center of its student body for college-level courses held on its own campus.

 

"Traditionally, we've served our higher-achieving students quite well," said Principal Scott Gengler. "We believe we've served our middle well, but we didn't have clear pathways for their post-secondary success. It was really random acts of college readiness."

 

Such partnerships might be "the best way to communicate collegiate expectations to high school students and teachers."

 

"Dual Credit" Options

 

Some officials say such programs could feed the next expansion of the quickly growing "dual credit" options, where students get both high school and college credit for the same course, and play a big role in making students more prepared for college.
