Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment

Dual (Credit) Enrollment/Early Enrollment

High School Student (Current or Early Completion)

In cooperation with a local school district, high school students who qualify for college admission may enroll in undergraduate college courses. At the discretion of the high school, the student may be awarded high school credit as well as college credit for successful completion of the college course. 

Dual Credit or college courses offered in the high school

If college classes are offered in the high school, your high school principal or counselor will be able to tell you what courses are offered as dual credit or for college credit only if applicable. Students must be of junior or senior status to enroll. Students will be able to apply for admission and register for these classes on site at the high school. Specific placement scores must be met in advance in order to register for math, English and other select courses. View the current College catalog and scroll down almost to end of the catalog to COURSE DESCRIPTIONS to find courses listed and their prerequisite requirements.

Principal or Counselor Note: Accuplacer testing may be provided by New River staff on site at the high school for dual credit courses offered in the high school with prerequisites prior to courses beginning each semester by working through your New River CTC contact, either your Regional Director of Operations or the Dean. Placement testing may be done the previous semester once classes are determined for the following semester. Placement testing must be completed and scores verified before the first day of class in order for the student to be enrolled in select courses. A student must provide placement test scores (ACT, SAT, English Language Arts and math on the West Virginia General Summative Assessment and scored an achievement level 3) in order to qualify for English or math courses and select courses that have prerequisite requirements.

High School students, to include those who complete graduation requirements early, are not eligible to receive Financial Aid until the Fall semester following graduation. Students are responsible for all tuition, fees and textbook costs if enrolling prior to this time.

High school students may take courses through New River concurrent with their high school courses under the following stipulations each semester:

  • Students must have junior or senior status
  • Must have an overall grade point average (GPA) of 2.5 or higher
  • Students must submit an Application for Admission each term enrolled
