How Do I Qualify for Dual Credit Courses?

Some dual credit courses require students to be ‘college-ready’ in areas such as English and Math. Students can meet these prerequisites in a variety of ways, including PSAT, SAT, or ACT scores, or for some courses a cumulative GPA of 2.6 or higher for juniors and seniors. For students who do not yet have a qualifying score, Ivy Tech offers the Knowledge Assessment, a holistic placement exam that allows you to meet reading, writing, and mathematics requirements while also improving your skills and preparing you for success in your next course!
