High School Students

Get College Credit in High School

Want to get a head start on your college education? We offer classes for current high school seniors who have a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or better.

Taking dual credits at DWU will qualify you for our Dual Credit Scholarship when you enroll as a freshman student.  You could earn up to $1500!

If you want to register for a class, you’ll need to complete the registration form. Make sure to have a school official and a parent sign it. You’ll also need to give us a copy of your current high school transcript.

Space in our programs for high school students is limited, so please know that we will select only the most dedicated to participate.

Also, please note that each college or university has different ways they evaluate classes for credit toward a degree. Ultimately, it will be up to them to decide whether or not your classes will be accepted for credit.

Resources and Other Considerations

As an official DWU student, you will receive a student ID and username, as well as a campus email address, access to TigerNet (our campus intranet), library resources, IT support and more.
