Off -Campus High School Dual Credit
High school dual credit classes are taught in the high school and may count toward both high school and college credit. Here are some of the benefits of enrolling in Missouri State University's off-campus high school dual credit program:
- Get a "jump start" on college by earning college credit before attending on a full-time basis.
- Pay 1/2 the cost of regular course fees charged by the University.
- Take classes during your normal high school hours earning both high school and university credit for your work.
- Enjoy the same University benefits as other Missouri State University students including access to the Meyer library, writing center and computer center, free sporting events, bowling, racquetball and more!
Students with high school dual credit may also qualify for the Missouri State Advantage Scholarship. For more information about dual credit opportunities at your high school, please see your high school counselor, visit the Missouri State high school dual credit program website, or contact the Missouri State Dual Credit Coordinator, Debbie Penn at 417-836-6246.
