How do the credits work? | return to top
St. Norbert College conducts a qualifying pre-test and final exam, giving you credit upon successful completion of the course. The college registrar will send a transcript to any college or university. While some schools don't accept transfer credits as a policy, most prestigious colleges and universities do accept St. Norbert College credit courses due to the history and reputation of our program. And, naturally, we guarantee that credits earned in the college credit program will be applied toward degree requirements on the St. Norbert College campus.
What is dual credit? | return to top
A dual credit course is a college course taken by a high school student for which the student earns both college and high school credit at the same time. College credit dual credit courses are taught on the high school campus during high school hours. By participating in the college credit program, you can make substantial progress toward your college degree before finishing high school.

How do I register? | return to top
Each winter, the teachers and counselors at college credit program participating high schools announce the following year’s program. They conduct pre-testing at the high schools in February or March for English and mathematics courses. Each applicant must fill out a registration form, provide an updated transcript and take the appropriate pre-test. St. Norbert College selects participants based on the applicant’s overall GPA, past grades in the discipline and test scores. Once selected, the applicant works with his or her counselor to schedule the college credit course for the following semester. Payment for the course(s) is due during the first two weeks of the high school’s fall semester.
