Dual Credit Courses Taught at MCHS
Students may also take courses which are dual credit. This means students receive college credit as well as high school credit. These courses will post to the student's college transcript and will be the beginning of his/her college GPA. Special care should be taken to ensure students do well in these courses for this reason. Dual credit courses are offered by MCHS faculty who have met the requirements of the college and online taught by college faculty. Beginning with the 2017-2018 school year courses cost approximately $58 per credit hour. A 3-hour course would cost around $180. This is a significant savings compared to the cost if taken directly from the college.
The following dual credit courses are typically offered at MCHS and taught by our faculty:
