Klamath Community College, in partnership with high schools, offers a state-approved dual-credit program. Students can earn college credit for competencies mastered in certain high school courses and receive high school and college credits at the same time.
The Dual Credit Program works closely with high school administrators and teachers to identify lower division academic and entry level professional technical courses that match programs offered at Klamath Community College. Courses are articulated and students take college-level courses in their high school instructed by approved teachers. Not all articulated courses are available at every school. Courses are recorded on a KCC transcript in the same manner as regularly enrolled college students and may be used toward a degree or certificate program at KCC or may be transferred to other colleges.
Classes are usually limited to seniors and qualified juniors. Exceptions may be made if the instructor determines that students meet established prerequisites for each particular course.
