>>Students taking dual credit classes are encouraged to contact the college they plan to attend to check for credit transferability. Some dual credits will be transcribed as elective credit if it is not required for a particular major or general studies requirement. Contact the college/university website to locate a transfer equivalency chart.
>>The transfer equivalency guides and general education requirements for the top five post-secondary schools that CJHS students attend are listed at the bottom of this page (Crowder College, Missouri Southern State University, Pitt State University, Missouri State University, University of Arkansas). Use these guides to determine transferability of dual credit courses.

PAYMENT NOTICE: Students with a balance remaining from a previous semester of dual credit will result in the student not being able to take any additional dual credit. Also, each college has a rigid payment schedule as well as a course drop policy. Failure to complete a required drop form (if needed) by its deadline will result in student/parent being held responsible for payment.
