One of the major challenges to offering college credit to high school students is establishing a successful partnership between secondary and postsecondary schools. To address this issue, CELL recently developed a directory that catalogs opportunities for high school students to earn college credit in Indiana. The directory provides information for high school administrators, counselors and teachers who want to explore dual credit partnerships with area colleges and universities.
Since 2006, the College Preparatory Curriculum Act has required each public and nonpublic accredited high school in the state to provide at least two dual credit courses. To help high school teachers and administrators identify the numerous opportunities available, the directory provides contact information for college credit programs at 36 public and independent colleges and universities across the state. The directory includes programs under development and those institutions that are willing to craft customized arrangements to meet individual high school needs.
The various programs are grouped into six inclusive categories.
The complete dual credit provider directory can be accessed online through CELL’s Web site.
