Dual Credit / Dual Enrollment

What is Dual Credit?

A Dual Credit Student is a student who is enrolled in a community college or junior college or state institution of higher learning while enrolled in high school and who is receiving both high school credit and college credit for postsecondary coursework. 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) as listed in the Jones County Junior College Bulletin and will receive credit that will also be applied to meet high school graduation requirements as verified by the high school principal. Articulation of college credits will be left to the discretion of the high school, although recommendations will be made by Jones County Junior College.
