Dual Credit

Get a jump start on your college education by enrolling in online, dual credit classes at Dordt College. Dual credit courses allow you to complete college courses while you are in high school in a way that works with your schedule.  


Not only does dual credit help you get ahead, but it also saves you money. Tuition is just $495 for a 3-credit course ($165 per credit). That’s 80% less than the standard tuition cost! Students are responsible for purchasing any required textbooks.  

Admission Requirements 

Students must be a junior or senior in high school with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 to participate in Dordt’s dual credit program. Each student must apply to the program by submitting an application and requesting a high school transcript to be sent to Dordt.  

Dual Credit Courses 

*CORE 120: English Composition (3 credits) 

Students will write a number of essays and a research paper. As they work on these, they will become aware of writing as a process and develop skills in generating ideas, revising, and editing. They will also review traditional grammar and principles of usage and style.
