Dual Credit

Explore university level work at an affordable rate
In this Section

The Dual Credit Program (DCP) allows motivated high school students the opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. 

Courses are taught during the regular school day in the student’s high school.

Students receive both high school and college credit for their work, which can decrease their time to earn a college degree. 

For Students and Parents

Upon completion of the UW-Stout DCP course, credits earned by students will be considered dual credit, and credits will count towards both high school and UW-Stout requirements.

DCP course grades appear on a UW-Stout college transcript and are accepted as college credit on our campus or can be transferred to other accredited colleges or universities.  Students should check with those institutions about their transfer policies. 

UW-Stout transcripts will reflect course credit the same as all other UW-Stout courses. Students may receive copies of their official UW-Stout transcript upon request and by paying the standard transcription fee.

Tuition for DCP courses is currently $110 per credit.

Courses are taught by qualified high school teachers whose credentials are reviewed and approved by appropriate department chair at UW-Stout.

For Schools and Teachers

High schools that offer Dual Credit Program courses through UW-Stout will enter into a contractual agreement each year.

Courses are taught by qualified high school teachers whose credentials are reviewed and approved by appropriate department chair at UW-Stout. 

Qualified high school teachers work with a UW-Stout faculty mentor from the appropriate department. The faculty mentors ensures that the DCP course lead by the high school teacher offers the same curriculum and meets the same learning outcomes as the corresponding on-campus course at UW-Stout. Students experience the same pace, rigor, and expectations that they will find on a college campus.
