MCC and its secondary school partners enter into dual credit agreements in career fields offered at the college. College pathways prepared by secondary schools map out curriculum for students from dual credit to obtaining a college credential at MCC and beyond. Many MCC program coordinators consider success in dual credit courses when selecting students for entrance in selective admission programs at MCC.
Students are encouraged to take advantage of their dual credit by enrolling at MCC. Dual credit represents a significant savings to students and their families in money and time. To get started with dual credit, you need to complete the dual credit admission form. The MCC dual credit coordinator, George Humphreys, registers students for dual credit classes at their local high school or tech campus.
Beginning in the 2012-13 academic year, the Kentucky Community and Technical Colleges System dual credit students began assessing a $50 charge per student per semester. The charge is nonrefundable. Students should establish their college email accounts and pay this charge as soon as they are notified by the MCC Business Office that it is due. Classes taught by college faculty are assessed at a higher tuition rate.
As a rule students may not take more than 4 dual credit classes in an academic year.
