College credit for High School Students

Dual Credit

Dual Credit Program Overview

William Jessup University offers high school students the opportunity to receive college credit through our Dual Credit program. This program gives college credits for courses taught on high school campuses, with the University approved curriculum and by the high school’s instructors. Students enrolled in dual credit can receive both high school and college credit for the course at the same time. Most colleges and universities will accept dual credit if the student earns a grade of C or better.

A Dual Credit course is taught at the collegiate level, preparing students for college work and facilitates the transition between high school and college. Through the program, students are able to reduce the time and costs needed to earn a college degree by receiving college credit during high school.

Jessup is an accredited, four-year Christian university strategically located in Rocklin, California. Our close proximity to the state’s capital gives unique opportunities for our students in the public and private sectors. We offer a wide variety of degree programs in our traditional undergrad programs, as well as several graduate degrees and fully online programs. Our accreditation through the WASC Senior College and University Commission (WSCUC) and the Association of Biblical Higher Education (ABHE) means that credits are transferable to many schools in the nation-including state universities, private colleges and bible colleges.
