You can earn college credit for free while still in high school! You have tons of options to earn both high school and Gateway Technical College credit for courses you take throughout your high school career. The benefits of dual credit add up, including:
- Thousands of dollars saved: Through dual credit, you earn college credit worth hundreds or thousands of dollars for free. That means that when you start college, you’ll have less costs in tuition.
- Career exploration: Dual credit gives you a more in-depth look at possible career paths, as well as hands-on learning opportunities.
- Quick career entry: By beginning to earn college credit in high school, you’ll jumpstart your education, allowing you to graduate faster and enter your career path as soon as possible.
