Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Students: Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment at DSU

Welcome to the DSU Library Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Research Guide!

Welcome to the Delta State University family! 

What does being a Dual Credit/Dual Enrollment Student mean?


A Dual Credit Student is a student who is enrolled in Delta State University while enrolled in high school and who is receiving both high school credit and college credit for postsecondary coursework. The student receives credit for coursework regardless of the course location (high school campus, postsecondary campus, or online). One three-hour postsecondary course is equal to one high school Carnegie unit. Upon completion of each Dual Credit course, the student will receive the appropriate number of college credits (college credit is reserved until after high-school graduation)  and will receive the credit that will also be applied to meet high school graduation requirements as verified by the high school principal.

Dual Enrollment Student is a student who is enrolled at Delta State University while also enrolled in high school. The student receives only postsecondary credit for coursework. Upon completion of each Dual Enrollment course, the student will receive the appropriate number of college credits (college credit is reserved until after high-school graduation). Eligible students may take a maximum of 12 semester credit hours of dual enrollment courses.
