Dual Credit

Program Overview

William Jessup University offers high school students the opportunity to receive college credit through an innovative Dual Credit program. This program provides earned college credits for approved courses while on high school campuses. The University approved curriculum is taught by high school instructors. Students enrolled in dual credit receive both high school and college credit for the course. Many colleges and universities accept dual credit based on achieving an academic grade of C or better.

Dual Credit courses are taught at the collegiate level, while preparing students for the transition between high school and college. Successful course completion reduces the time and costs needed to earn a college degree after high school. We encourage you to participate in this opportunity and explore Jessup’s programs.

As a participant in the dual credit program during your Junior or Senior year of high school, the earned course credits will transfer to Jessup upon admission acceptance. In addition, you will be eligible for a one-year $2,000 Dual Credit Scholarship (subject to all Jessup Financial Aid policies) when you matriculate into a traditional degree program at Jessup. Students must complete the entire Admissions and Financial Aid process in order to qualify. This scholarship is unavailable to members of our athletic programs, in lieu of other potential sources of funding.
