Proviso Township High Schools partners with Triton College and other colleges to offer Dual Enrollment and Dual Credit courses.
We have a Dual Credit agreement with multiple colleges, including Triton College, where students can earn college and high school credit for specific classes taken at Proviso. These classes are taught by teachers who are qualified to teach both. The Dual Credit program is open to students currently enrolled in or are interested in taking Advanced Placement courses. Courses with a dual credit option are denoted with “DC” or Dual Credit next to their titles in the Curriculum Handbook. Students should contact their counselor for information regarding eligibility and registration.
Talented Juniors and Seniors may be enrolled simultaneously in high school and college if the District has a formal agreement with the college. Interested students should contact their counselor for information regarding eligibility and registration.
