More than 1500 high school students throughout the Lake Land College district got a taste of college without ever leaving their high school classrooms during the 2013-2014 school year with the college’s Dual Credit Program.
The Lake Land College Dual Credit Program offers eligible high school juniors and seniors the chance to enroll in college-level courses while earning both high school and college credit, tuition free.
Courses are taught by a high school teacher, who is qualified to instruct college-level classes, during the regular high school day at the high school’s facilities. To enroll in dual credit courses, students must be juniors or seniors and initially have a high school grade point average equivalent of a C to enroll. Once a student has taken at least one dual credit course, he/she must maintain an LLC grade point average of 2.0 to continue enrollment.
