Dual Credit Information for High School Parents

Prerequisite/College Readiness Information

A prerequisite is a requirement that a student must meet prior to enrolling in a specific course or program. Some dual credit courses require students to submit qualifying score(s) before they are deemed college ready. Depending on the course, this college-ready score could be a PSAT score, SAT score, ACT score, or a cumulative GPA. For students who do not have a qualifying score, Ivy Tech offers Knowledge Assessment, which allows students to be assessed in reading, writing, and mathematics.
