Dual credit allows high school students to take college level courses and get credit for them before their freshman year in college.
Bismarck State College hosts a meeting for Bismarck Public Schools (BPS) sophomore, junior, and senior high students and their parents Monday, Dec. 12, to learn more about the dual credit option. The session is 5:30 to 6 p.m. in the BPS Career Academy multipurpose room on BSC's campus.
This first time event will explain dual credit and early entry options for college-bound students, who qualify to take BSC classes on campus and online or certain courses at the high school.
"Last year really exploded in terms of our dual credit relationship with the high schools," said Kari Williams, BSC alternative learning coordinator. "Student demand is rising for these kind of opportunities."
