Why Teach Dual Credit Courses
Why are dual credit courses important to Hoosier students?
Students who take dual credit courses in high school are more likely to go to college after high school, save money on college, graduate on time or early from college, and perform better academically while in college. See the Indiana Commission for Higher Education’s compelling data here.

Why do teachers need to take graduate courses to become credentialed to teach dual credit?
Beginning in September of 2025, high school educators teaching dual credit courses will be required to have a master’s degree in the content area they teach or a master’s degree in another area plus 18 graduate credit hours in the content area they teach. These requirements are set by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC), the accrediting body for degree-granting institutions in 19 states.
