Dual Credit Policy

A dual credit course is a university course taken by a high school student for credit at both the university and the high school.  The course is taken at the high school and taught by a high school teacher.  The high school course must have the same content, learning outcomes, and assessment methods as the Northeastern course, and the high school teacher must meet the same academic credential requirements as an adjunct faculty member teaching at Northeastern. 

The student must meet the same academic criteria prior to enrolling in the credit-bearing course as a student enrolled in the respective course at Northeastern, and he/she must complete the appropriate application materials.  The student pays all appropriate university tuition and fees as designated by Northeastern’s Board of Trustees.

Northeastern adheres to all policies and procedures outlined in the Higher Education Dual Credit Quality Act (110 ILCS 72).
