Do you want to:
- Earn college credit at no cost while still in high school?
- Get a head start on college coursework?
- Reduce time spent on earning a career technical certificate or college degree?
- Showcase educational achievement?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, then Dual Credit through KCC is a good fit for you. Klamath Community College offers dual credit at high schools across Oregon and California. Students can earn substantial amounts of college credit at their respective high schools while taking classes that they have to take anyways. Best of all, KCC offers Dual Credit completely free of charge.
For example, rather than taking Senior English for high school credit only, a senior can take Writing 121, Writing 122, and Speech 111 during his/her senior year, earning nine college credits completely free, while meeting the high school English requirement!
Right now, Dual Credit courses are being taught at dozens of Oregon and California high schools, and KCC is constantly working with new and existing schools to offer more Dual Credit courses, but not all courses are available at every school.
Dual Credit courses taken are recorded on an official KCC transcript and may be used toward a degree or certificate program at KCC or transferred to other colleges or universities.
Juniors and seniors take the lion's share of Dual Credit classes, but freshman, sophomores, and even junior high students are given this opportunity with their school's approval.
