Juniors and Seniors may be eligible to receive college credit while in high school, if they meet the requirements to take a college credit course. Students have three different ways to earn college credit: Advanced Credit, Advanced Placement, and Dual Credit.

                             Advanced Credit, AP, & Dual Credit Requirements

      All public universities in Missouri accept the three forms of credit in the chart. While most universities accept college credit earned in high school, some do not. We strongly encourage students and parents to contact the university they are thinking about attending and ask if they accept Advanced Credit, Advanced Placement, and/or Dual Enrollment earned while in high school.

    • Possible Courses for Advanced Credit & Advanced Placement

      The Missouri Board of Higher Education has the following requirements for students taking the course for college credit:
      Juniors and Seniors: 3.0 unweighted GPA or 2.5 to 3.0 unweighted GPA with parent and principal signature
      Sophomores: 3.0 unweighted GPA with parent and principal signature
      Freshmen: 3.0 unweighted GPA with parent and principal signature AND a registered ACT/SAT score in 90th percentile
