Post High School Planning

Beyond four-year college, there are many options for continuing education and training after high school:

Dual Credit Opportunities

Did you know you can get a head start on college by earning dual credit while still in high school? Here is how you can do it! Students can earn BOTH high school AND college credit (this is called DUAL CREDIT) for completing select high school courses with a grade of “B” (3.0) or better.

Dual credit programs give students the opportunity to earn high school and college credit at the same time. Students who earn college credit are more likely to graduate high school, enroll in college, and complete college degrees.
 
Each dual credit program is a little different, but there are three main types: 
  1. Credit by passing a college course
    • College in the High School provides college courses that are taught at the high school, by high school teachers, with college curriculum, college textbooks, and oversight by college faculty and staff. 
    • Running Start - Students enroll in courses taught on-campus at Washington’s community and technical colleges and at select four-year colleges. 
  2. Credit by exam
  3. Credit by articulation
    • Students can earn credit through some career and technical education (CTE) courses with CTE Dual Credit.
Pacific NW College Credit (Registration opens December 1)
PNWCC offers high school students the option to earn college credit right at their high school for Career & Technical Education. Students must earn a B or higher in the class AND pay the $50 annual fee. Fee waivers are available. Check with Ms. Henderson
