It is always a good idea to contact any college or university you are considering on attending after high school to see if they will accept the dual enrollment course as a transfer credit before you pay money to take it. Many universities have websites you can go to that provide specific information about which transfer credits are accepted. The Missouri Department of Higher Education provides a Course Transfer Tracker for students to use to see how courses will transfer between Missouri colleges and universities. You can view this tracker by following this link.
Students should be cautious about dual enrolling in a class that is related to their intended college major. For example, an individual who plans on majoring in a science related field in college may want to refrain from dual enrolling in a science class in high school.
The grade and corresponding GPA you receive for a dual credit course will be placed on your permanent college transcript, so only take a course for dual credit if you are confident you will do well in the course.
