Dual Credit at Proviso
What is Dual Credit?
Dual credit allows high school students to earn both high school credit as well as college credit in certain courses.
For specific classes, students can earn BOTH Proviso High Schools credit as well as credits at Triton College, while taking any approved courses at our Proviso campuses with your Proviso teacher. Your grades are shared with Triton College to ensure the successful completion of the objectives of the course. Then, upon successful completion of the course, credit is awarded on BOTH your Proviso transcript and your Triton College transcript.
Please be reminded when taking a Dual Credit course, you are officially a college student. Your performance in the course may have future impact on student loan eligibility, FAFSA, and the ability to apply for college admission upon completion of your high school career.
There are plenty of benefits in taking a dual credit course!
