DUAL CREDIT PROGRAM
The Triton College Dual Credit Program is a great opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school, something that will potentially save you money in college tuition and help you advance more quickly toward a post-high school degree. You do not have to attend Triton College to benefit from dual credit. Many colleges and universities accept dual credit courses from Triton, and if you have specific questions about whether this is a good option for you, we encourage you to reach out to your counselor.
