Dual Credit

Dual Credit

Corban University’s dual credit program allows you to take approved courses at your high school—taught by your teachers—and receive both high school and college credit.

Course offerings are normally restricted to high school seniors. Exceptions to this policy may be made for high-achieving juniors, but sophomores and freshmen may not enroll in dual credit courses with Corban University.

By taking courses through Corban’s Dual Credit Program, you will:

  • Challenge yourself with rigorous academics that will help you excel in college.
  • Earn college credit from an accredited university at a fraction of the regular tuition cost, saving time and money on your college education.
  • Have college-level courses on your transcript to help you stand out in college admissions.

“I am grateful my high school partnered with Corban and made it simple for me to take dual credit classes. I came into college with 12 credits of general education classes and an idea of what a college course entails. This allowed me to take other courses that interested me, take lighter semesters, and gave me the option to graduate earlier.” – Bethany Trull, Counseling Psychology ‘22
