Dual Credit Options
U-46 partners with Elgin Community College to offer a Dual Credit program for our high school juniors and seniors. The full-time Dual Credit program provides students the opportunity to take all of their coursework at Elgin Community College (ECC) while earning both high school and college credit for all of their courses.
Current sophomores and juniors are eligible to apply to the Dual Credit program for the 2020-21 school year. Juniors are able to earn up to 32 credit hours of transferable credit during their senior year of high school. Sophomores who enter this program as juniors have the opportunity to earn their Associate’s Degree of Arts or Science at the end of their senior year. Upon successful completion of their graduation requirements, students enrolled in this program will graduate high school with their high school diploma and college credits. There is a part-time Dual Credit program, as well.
