It’s part of our commitment to providing a high-value education that allows you to grow not only academically, but in your faith as well.   

About the dual credit program

Concordia’s Dual Credit program offers honors-level high school students the opportunity to jump start their college career at a much lower cost than as a traditional undergraduate. As part of the program, students enroll in university courses and, upon completion, receive both college and high school credit.

You’ll also develop and hone skills for the future. With the Dual Credit program, you’ll follow a college syllabus, learn to balance work loads, and cultivate critical thinking, all while setting yourself on the track to graduate early.  

Structured weekly deadlines and faculty support will help you stay on track for success. Through flexible online classes or in-person classes, you can complete coursework during the school day or at home. Download an example of a dual credit school week.

Courses are one semester long and cost $200 per credit ($50 per credit through the Concordia Promise). You might be eligible for outside funding from the state or school district to cover the tuition costs for your Dual Credit courses.
