Make Every Credit Count! 

The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences accepts credits earned through dual credit programs including High School Dual Credit, College Credit Plus, Credit by Examination, and Military Credit.

Dual Credit / College Credit Plus

Have you earned college credit while in High School?

 

The Christ College of Nursing and Health Sciences accepts credits earned through dual credit programs. There are many benefits for high school students to participate in a dual credit program including:

  • Dual credit lets you earn high school and college credits at the same time.

  • Dual credit enables you to get a head start on career planning and learn more about your career interests.

  • Dual credit increases your chances of completing a college degree, may help you complete your degree quicker, or lessen your workload while enrolled in College.

  • Dual credit enhances your ability to a make a smooth transition onto a college campus as you learn the expectations of college level work.

  • Dual credit class often saves money on tuition and textbooks.

 

There are some important things to consider when taking dual credit courses:

  • The grades you earn in dual credit courses does count towards your grade point average (GPA) and may impact your admission and Financial Aid eligibility at TCCNHS. Dual credit courses and credit hours will be documented on your official TCCNHS transcript; however they will not be calculated in your overall TCCNHS GPA.

  • To have any college credits earned through a dual credit program evaluated for college credit at TCCNHS you must submit an official transcript from the college or university where you earned the credit. Dual credit grades listed on your high school transcript will not suffice as proof of credits earned.

  • Only courses which you earned a “C” or better will transfer in for credit at TCCNHS.

  • Not every course taken through dual credit programs may earn credit at TCCNHS. Only courses that apply towards your area of study or major will be transferred in. See our helpful dual credit guide below of suggested courses to take on to maximize the amount of advance standing credit.
