Did you know that you can earn college credits while you are in high school?  Qualified high school students can earn college credits to fulfill college degree requirements. These same credits can be used toward a degree at Kentucky State University or another state of Kentucky public institution of your choice. However, if you are considering attending a private and/or college outside of the state of Kentucky, you may wish to verify the courses will be accepted toward your degree.

It’s never too early to start thinking about college. Kentucky State University is here to help you excel!

About Our Program

About our Program Dual credit refers to courses offered in a cooperative arrangement with local school districts. The purpose of dual credit course offerings is to provide a mechanism through which high school students can earn college credit while simultaneously meeting their high school graduation requirements by taking courses in the high school setting that provide university credit. Students enrolled in dual c/e courses earn college credit for courses taken prior to entry into college which leads to:

  • Earlier graduation from college
  • Decreased need for financial aid
  • Increase in college preparation and career readiness

Finally, dual credit benefits school systems which have limited resources to offer advanced courses, as well as the combining of foundational courses that have similar content for the both the high school and college entry-level curriculum.
