CTE Dual Credit

Formerly Tech Prep College Connections

Pacific NW College Credit offers Dual Credit to high school students as part of the statewide CTE Dual Credit program (nationally known as Tech Prep).   Registered students in CTE Dual Credit classes can earn BOTH high school AND college credit for completing select high school classes with a grade of “B” (3.0) or better.  The college credit earned is credit for an actual college course(s) currently offered at the awarding college.  Our students are directly transcribed, the same way a student attending the college would be, the summer after completing their high school class.  This enables students to start earning credit towards a professional or technical degree program without leaving their high school or local skill center campus!

Student Registration:
