Important Dual Credit Information

Student Responsibilities
Dual credit students are responsible for their own education. In addition to regular attendance, students are expected to have active class participation, meet course objectives and deadlines, seek academic help when needed, utilize the SCC Portal and the CANVAS Learning Management System. Students should respond to their SCC emails and address any concerns directly with their instructors.
Dates and Deadlines
Dual credit students will follow the SCC Academic Calendar and course deadlines, regardless of high school calendars and cancellations. Students should plan ahead and complete assignments before deadlines.
FERPA
In college, no matter the student’s age, educational rights are limited solely to the student. Parents have no inherent right to inspect their son’s or daughter’s educational records. Learn more about FERPA.
Attendance
An instructor may administratively withdraw a student for non-attendance or poor attendance. The Administrative Withdrawal Policy may be found in the SCC Board Polices on the college website.
Accreditation
SCC is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission. Credit earned under this program will be applicable toward a degree at SCC and is generally transferable to other accredited four-year colleges and universities in Missouri. General education courses that are part of Missouri’s statewide Core Transfer Curriculum (CORE 42) are guaranteed to transfer to any public institution in the state.
Transferring Credits
Because each institution establishes its own transfer credit policies, St. Charles Community College cannot guarantee transfer of credits outside the CORE 42 to another university. SCC has many transfer agreements with other colleges and universities. Students are responsible for consulting with other college institutions about transfer policies. For more about transferring credit from SCC to another institution, refer to the following pages:
Tuition, Textbooks and Payment

The partnering high school determines if the school district or the student is responsible for tuition, fees, textbooks and other class-related materials. Contact your high school for more information.

Textbook information can be found through the SCC Bookstore or in the course syllabus. Information regarding the bookstore is available on the college website.

Payment for dual credit courses must be made before the deadline, or students will be dropped from their class(s) and high school credits could be affected.

Dropping Courses
We hope students are successful. If dropping a course is a consideration, please first review the drop deadline, refund schedule, contact your school representative to determine how this will impact high school credits and graduation, and your parents, before making a decision. If dropping a course is necessary, contact the dual credit coordinator at dualcredit@stchas.edu.
