Dual Credit

Information on dual credit programming offered in partnership with CNM and UNM.

APS partners with CNM and UNM to offer dual credit courses for students who meet the basic qualifications.

What is Dual Credit?

I'm a new Dual Credit student.

 

The dual credit program allows high school students (10-12th grade) to take college courses while they are still in high school. Students get credit for high school and for college. 

 

How much does it cost?

I need a textbook.

Dual credit tuition and registration fees are free for any 10-12th grade student. Textbook costs are supplied by APS. Any additional fees or materials will be at the students' expense.

 

 

Why should I take a Dual Credit class?

  • FAQs

    Taking at least one Dual Credit course fulfills part of your graduation requirements (You must take a dual credit, AP/IB, or distance learning course to receive your HS diploma).
  • Experience college courses first hand (for free) to build confidence in your ability to continue post-secondary training.
  • Earn college credit in high school (1 high school credit = 3 college credits). 
  • Access to student resources offered by the college (like tutoring, libraries, clubs, etc.).

Who should I talk to about Dual Credit?

If you are interested in taking Dual Credit contact your School Counselor. He/She can let you know if you qualify, how to become a Dual Credit student, and what classes are available to you.
