2017-2018 Course Catalog – Dual Credit

◄ Introduction

Dual Credit Courses

Dual Credit Courses (designated as “DC” in the course catalog descriptions) are Indiana Academy courses taught by Academy instructors and have been recognized as equivalent to a Ball State University course. Students who enroll for dual credit may request a transcript from Ball State University which can be transferred to any college or university that accepts BSU credits. Students are responsible for the special dual credit tuition fee. The tuition fee for dual credit varies according to the course. In the list on page iii, all courses in underlined will cost $25 per college credit hour. These courses are on the state core library list for automatic transfer between Indiana Universities and colleges. The tuition for all courses listed in italics is $250.00 per course. All tuition fees are waived for students who are on free and reduced lunch. Applications, directions for enrollment, and other information on dual credit courses can be obtained from the Guidance Office.

Frequently Asked Questions About Dual Credit

Important items to keep in mind:

  1. Fall semester enrollment will take place during the first two weeks of the semester. Enrollment for spring dual credit courses will take place in late January. You must enroll during these times if you wish to receive dual credit.
  2. Dual credit courses indicated with an asterisk (*) are the second course in a two-semester sequence. Students must enroll in the fall in the first course of the sequence in order to qualify for dual credit in the spring semester. Students must enroll and pay another tuition fee for the second course in the sequence at the start of the Spring semester.
  3. Courses labeled “enroll in spring only” have two semesters of the Academy classes to equal one semester of the BSU class. Enrollment is done in the second semester of the Academy class. Final dual credit grade is an average between the two semesters of the Academy class.
  4. Actual courses available for dual credit are subject to change. Check with the Guidance Office for the most current list of courses.
