Dual Credit

Dual credit programs provide the opportunity for high school students to earn college credits at reduced rates while still satisfying high school graduation requirements. These classes are college level classes.  They are more rigorous classes requiring more studying time at home than a regular high school class. Students receive a letter grade based on work completed during the duration of the class which will be reflected on a college transcript. Credits are transferable to Idaho colleges and universities, and many other institutions outside the state. For more information about transferring credits go to:

STUDENT PORTAL DIRECTIONS
a. If new to the portal "create an account" using an e-mail address on the Portal above. 
*Please remember to write down the password and e-mail used for future reference!

b. The information is then reviewed through the district, and if there are any errors the account could be "denied" until the information is corrected.

c. If "denied" go back into your account and check the following typical errors found on student accounts:

 *Birth Date is wrong

 *Duplicate accounts (can only have one account and you may have forgotten your parent created one or you did the prior year)                   

 *It is advised to use outside not district e-mail as sometimes e-mails bounce
   
 *Not going back in to get your e-mail sent by the portal after starting a new account to "verify" your account (verifies the e-mail is yours).

d. Once errors are fixed and the new account is approved you must go back in and click on"Request Funding" and follow the prompts in order.
*You must "request funding" separately for EVERY class. (Start with this step if you already have an account).

e.  Once finished click on "Previous Course Applications" and you will see the status of the classes you have requested funding for at this time.  
*If your class is not there you have not requested funding for that class.

f.  Participation Form: This additional form must be turned in to your teacher in order for your funding to be processed.  You may print one off of the following link or you may pick one up from your teacher or the career center.  
*You only need one Participation Form filled out for all classes.  
*If you filled it out Fall semester you need not do it again in the Spring.

3. If I get a bill from the college offering my class who do I contact? 

CWI(208) 562-3149 
BSU:(208) 426-3294
CSI: (208) 426-3294
NNU:(208) 467-8373
U of I(888) 884-3246

4.  If I am at risk for failing a dual credit class what should I do?

*Find out the drop date from your teacher for your specific class (will vary with each college).  If you drop in time you will not have the grade posted on your college transcript.  

*Important: If you do not drop the class in time and receive an F for a final grade this could affect your financial aid possibilities when you start college after high school. It will also affect any future advanced opportunities funding you request through the state.
