College credit earned in high school gives students a jump start to a college education. Formally called “Tech Prep”, students completing approved technical classes while in high school can earn both high school and college credit simultaneously. In order to receive college credit, students must meet specific criteria for each course. The grading criterion requires a minimum of a “B” grade (3.0) or better each semester in their approved technical classes. Upon achievement of all criteria, instructors will assist students in registering for credit through the SERS Registration System. Students will receive a college transcript from the community college during the summer.
- Enroll in an approved CTE course.
- Earn a “B” or better and demonstrate any required skills.
- Register for credit on-line at https://www.ctesers.org
- Once you have completed all components, your instructor will notify the college to transcript your credit.
- Submit your “official” college transcript to the post secondary school you will attend upon graduation from high school but be sure to follow transcript request procedures from the college where you earned dual credit.
Remember: You must register for credit in the school year you take the high school course.
