DUAL CREDIT AND CONCURRENT ENROLLMENT

PASS Department services for High School Dual Credit and Concurrent Enrollment Students

Vernon College defines a dual credit class as “A college-level class delivered and controlled by the college, utilizing SACSCOC credentialed full-time faculty and/or adjunct faculty and/or high school faculty that meet SACSCOC credentials; which the high school permits qualified high school students to enroll in for the opportunity for dual credit.” As the student participates and completes the college-level course, the grades are provided to the high school and the high school awards dual credit to the high school student for the appropriate corresponding high school class. The student is not participating in a high school class.


K-12 Individual Education Plans (IEP) and ARD agreements/plans are not applicable to the high school students enrolled in a college-level class. High school students enrolled in college-level classes for the opportunity for dual credit should request appropriate accommodations from the college just as any other college student. After the request for accommodations has been filed, the college will follow its’ processes and practices for the high school student just as it would any other college student that requests appropriate accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). If students or parents are concerned about college level appropriate accommodations, they should strongly consider the pros and cons of participation in the colleges classes offered for dual credit opportunities.


The information related to ADA accommodations at Vernon College is in the Vernon College Catalog, the Vernon College Student Handbook, and on the Vernon College website. The PASS Department Director/Office for Students with Disabilities (OSD) Coordinator is available on the Vernon campus and the Century City Center location. Students may email jshoemaker@vernoncollege.edu or dlehman@vernoncollege.edu or call 940-552-6292 ext. 2307.


High school students enrolled in college-level classes for the opportunity for dual credit are encouraged to take advantage of all student support services offered by Vernon College including tutoring, academic coaching, student success series, counseling, academic advising, and career counseling.
