A Head Start on Higher Education.
Double Up On Credit
Dual credit courses allow South Dakota high school students to earn credit for both their postsecondary degree and high school diploma. These courses are offered by higher education institutions and contain college-level content and subject matter.
Dual credit courses are available to 11-12th-grade students at $48.33 per credit, a fraction of the cost of the state’s technical institutes and public universities.
How Do I Register?
