Dual credit is offered at one-half the price that students usually pay at MCC.
You are not required to pursue dual credit to take the Entrepreneurial Studies class.
Articulation vs. Dual Credit
If your student is going to start at MCC right out of high school, do not pay for dual credit. Your student can get the same credit for free under an articulation agreement.
If your student is going to start at a four-year college or a community college besides MCC, check with your student's intended college to see if they will accept the credit before you pay. Many Missouri schools accept MCC credit, but some will not.
For articulated credit, the student must complete the full course (most are two years) with a B- average or higher. If the student only finishes one year of a two-year course, they will not earn the credit. If the student's grade average over four semesters is a C+ or below, they will not earn the articulated credit.
