Dual Credit and Dual Enrollment

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 distance education. Dual credit is offered

by both state and independent (private, regionally accredited) colleges and universities.


Shawe Memorial Jr/Sr High School has a dual credit partnership with Ivy Tech Community College. All dual credit courses are taught by Shawe faculty on our campus. Shawe faculty must meet Ivy Tech credentialing requirements and the course syllabus must be aligned with the corresponding course at Ivy Tech. Dual Enrollment courses are taught at Ivy Tech by Ivy Tech instructors.  Dual Enrollment courses are open to Shawe juniors and seniors and are usually offered during 7th and 8th period.  Students drive to Ivy Tech for these classes.  Most courses have prerequisites (PSAT, SAT, ACT, or Accuplacer scores) and students must earn at least a C average in the course to earn Ivy Tech college credit in addition to the Shawe high school credit.
