What is Dual Credit?
Dual credit enables qualified high school students to take University-level courses taught by qualified high school instructors. Students simultaneously receive academic credit for the course from both the high school and MSSU.
What is Dual Enrollment?
Dual enrollment enables qualified high school students to take University-level courses taught by an MSSU Faculty member while simultaneously enrolled in the high school and MSSU. Credit is typically only awarded at the university level; however, students may be eligible to earn high school credit for such courses with approval from the high school district. Dual enrollment opportunities at MSSU will likely be delivered to the student through a distance learning delivery mode (online).
