Through Lee College's Dual Credit Programs, eligible high school students can complete college courses and receive credit from both the college and the high school. The college course(s) — academic or career/technical — apply toward high school graduation and provide a jump start toward a college degree or certificate.

Lee College offers the following programs for Dual Credit:

  • Traditional Dual Credit
    A student may earn up to 42 semester credit hours towards core curriculum completion, or career/technical certificates.

  • Early College High School (ECHS)
    A student may earn up to 60 semester credit hours towards baccalaureate or an associate degree.

  • Pathways in Technology ECHS
    A student may earn industry-based certification, Level 1 or 2 certificates, or up to 60 semester credit hours towards an associate of applied science degree.

To see if you are eligible, start by contacting your high school counselor, or FIND YOUR DUAL CREDIT ADVISOR.
