UCM's dual credit program reaches all over the state, including more than 82 high schools. It is an educational experience that allows juniors and seniors to participate in college-level coursework while maintaining the transitional comfort and ease of a high school environment.
The dual credit program offers students the opportunity to take fall, spring and summer courses in any given year. There are approximately 67 different courses available each semester. These courses are offered in a variety of formats to include: online, I-TV (interactive television), or face-to face. Courses range from computer science and nursing, to art and music.
There are many benefits to taking UCM dual credit classes. Tuition for a course at UCM taken through the dual credit program is a substantial savings compared to the university's undergraduate tuition. While obtaining college credit for your high school classes, you will receive a discount of approximately 50 percent on tuition. (Current tuition costs are available at www.ucmo.edu/dualcredit/student) Other benefits include: access to the James C. Kirkpatrick Library both online and in person, access to all campus computer labs, and all extra fees (application, parking, labs, etc.) are waived.

"I liked taking dual credit courses because it gave me a real experience of what college was going to be like after I graduated high school. My professors (when taking online or ITV) were awesome and it was a mature atmosphere; a real escape from ‘high school life’.”
