CEC Dual Credit Option

There will be new procedures for the dual credit classes beginning with the new school year in 2019 – 2020. CEC will continue to partner with the University of Louisville for dual credit classes in English 101 and 102, IWU for Business and Personal Finance, and JCTC for Macroeconomics. Due to changes in requirements, students who take these classes MUST choose the dual credit option and pay the college for the credit. In addition, students must include a complete transcript demonstrating a 3.0 GPA at the time of registration.  More details to come about JCTC fees and process. 

For the English class, a student must also include the ACT reading test score of 20 or higher or the SAT reading score of 480 or higher in order to be eligible for the class. If a student has not taken the test before registration, he/she will be placed on a waiting list until he/she can send CEC a test score that qualifies him/her for this grade.
