NMSU Grants: Dual Credit Program


Dual Credit is a state-wide program established to increase educational options and opportunities for high school, and home-schooled, students. Eligible students are allowed to enroll in college level courses, simultaneously earning credit at both secondary and post-secondary levels. Dual Credit exposes students to college level responsibilities, allows students to investigate career options that schools and districts otherwise could not provide, and offers students a low cost/no cost pathway to earning college credits before they graduate from high school. If you wish to participate in the Dual Credit Program, you must first consult with your High School Counselor.
