Indiana Dual Credit Information
Dual credit is the term given to courses in which high school students have the opportunity to earn both high school and college credits simultaneously. Dual credit courses are taught by high school faculty, adjunct college faculty or college faculty either at the high school, at the college or university, or sometimes through online courses or digital education. Dual credit is offered by both state and independent (private, regionally accredited) colleges and universities.
Through a partnership with the Indiana Department of Education, many institutions in the state offer a wide array of graduate courses for teachers. More information can be found online at Teach Dual Credit Indiana. Priority is given to Indiana teachers.
INvestEd, a statewide nonprofit, is providing a $3 million grant for Hoosier teachers to receive the necessary credit hours, up to 18 in total. The grant could fully qualify between 200 and 700 teachers, depending on how many credits teachers take. There are currently more than 560 Indiana teachers who have master’s degrees but lack the 18 hours.
Teach Dual Credit Indiana is a program to ensure that Indiana high school teachers are equipped and qualified to teach dual credit courses. Teach Dual Credit Indiana provides the funding for tuition and books for teachers who are seeking to fulfill dual credit credentialing requirements as set forth by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC).
Teach Dual Credit Indiana is made available by a grant from INvestED to the Indiana Commission for Higher Education and administered by the Center of Excellence in Leadership of Learning (CELL) at the University of Indianapolis. Priority is given to Indiana teachers.
