Dual Credit: Reviewing Your Options

There are some factors to consider and ralk about with your family and school guidance counselor before you register for Dual Credir courses. They are official Diné College classes, so it is important to know that you are starting a college transcript and these classes will become part of your permanent academic records. So before you get started, consider a couple a key suggestions

  • Talk about his opportunity with your parent/guardian. Remember, it is relatively free, local, and convenient but also discuss deadlines, workload, and responsibility.
  • Talk to your parent/guardian, teachers, and guidance counselor about your plans and your intended major. Your guidance counselor and a Diné College Stuent Success Advisor can definitely help you in this area.
  • Do some research into your college plans/major and how these classes will fit into your intended major. The gardes you earn will become part of your official college transcripts at Diné College.
  • Review and study all the information and opportunities Diné College has to offer, especially the guidelines associated with student enrollment and policies.

Tuition and Fees

Course billing are taken care of by Diné College and the high schools through agreements made by both parties. The billing process is determined after the student has successfully completed the class. Tuition for Diné College students are as follows:

  • $30 per credit hour, so a 3 credit hour class would cost a student $90 and a 4 credit would cost a student $120.
  • $20 Application Fee (onetime fee for new students)

  • $20 Technology Fee

This is an excellent opportunity for students to take college classes for free, at not cost to families, and it close to home and accessible.
