Dual Credit & Dual Enrollment

Dual Credit courses are offered in conjunction with the City Colleges of Chicago. Qualified students can take classes at Kelly to earn both high school and college credit, as long as a grade of C or higher is earned.
The process for students who are interested in dual credit classes.

How Do You Qualify?

  • Be a junior or senior in high school 
  • ​​​Submit a signed parental permission form
  • Submit a copy of your high school ID card
  • Before taking the test, make sure you prepare
  • Most courses require that students be college-ready as demonstrated by the ACT, SAT, or the CCC Placement Test (see cut off scores below)                                            

How Do You Enroll?    

  • Speak with your counselor 
  • Confirm your readiness for college-level course work via the ACT or SAT

  • Have a parent sign the permission form

 Once Enrolled. . .                                                                                                   

 Dual Credit students will receive the following from their high school and CCC:               

  • CCC student ID number
  • CCC photo ID
  • CCC student email account
  • A visit to CCC which will include an introduction and access to CCC student resources such as:
    • Tutoring
    • Advising
    • Career Counseling


Students in Dual Credit courses must pass the course with a grade of "C" or better to receive college credit for the course. If a grade of "D" is passing at a particular high school, the student will earn high school graduation credit, but not college credit.                                                                                                  

City Colleges of Chicago offers high-school juniors and seniors the opportunity to receive college credit before they graduate.
