Dual Credit

Are you interested in taking college classes while in high school?  If so, Mrs. Slatter can help you see if Dual Credit is right for you.   Your first step should be to attend a mandatory orientation session.  This is for those students who are new to the dual credit program.   The student and at least one parent/guardian must attend the event.

  • If you will be taking college classes next year, you need some kind of test scores.   Going to a junior college?  You can stick with the TSI if you want.  Going to a 4-year university?  If so, you will need an SAT or ACT, but you might also need the TSI. 
  • If you took the SAT or ACT, check your scores and see if you scored high enough.  These are the scores that you need to be considered "college ready"
  • If you took the SAT, make sure you do NOT look at the writing section to figure out if you need to take the TSI scores!  


  • If you did not score what is shown in the image above, then you need to take the TSI.
