What is Dual Credit?

Students are concurrently enrolled in high school and college while taking some college classes for high school and college credit. To take advantage of Dual Credit, students must have completed their sophomore year, be at least 16 years old, meet established criteria, and have permission from appropriate high school personnel, parents/guardians, and Sauk personnel. Students requesting to participate in Sauk’s Dual Credit program must satisfy the course placement policy by taking the Sauk placement test or providing Sauk with ACT scores. They must also attend a required informational night at their high school, which is hosted by SVCC.
