- What is the “College Courses for High School Students” program (also known as “Dual Credit”)?
- The “College Courses for High School Students” program at Glenville State College gives high school juniors and seniors opportunities to get started early with college courses while still being in high school. When enrolling in GSC’s courses that are held in the high school during school hours, high school students not only receive college credit but high school credit as well.
- What are the benefits of the Program?
- Save time: one of the most beneficial aspects is the ability to advance a college career while still being a high school student.
Save money: one dual-credit course costs 1/3 of what a regular on-campus course costs.
- Who is eligible for the Program?
- High school juniors and seniors must meet the following guidelines:
- A Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.00 or better.
- Be recommended by the high school principal.
- Met the prerequisites of the desired course(s) as outlined in the College’s catalog
- What textbooks are used for the courses?
- The courses off-campus use the same textbook as on-campus courses. Please contact the College’s Bookstore for more information regarding the current text for the course(s).
- Will the college courses transfer to other college?
- The courses offered to high school students are considered “general education” or “general studies” courses. Typically, a high school student who earns credit in those type of courses can easily transfer the credits to any two- or four-year public college or university in West Virginia. If you plan to attend a private or an out-of-state college or university, please contact the institution’s Registrar for information on acceptance of credit.
