Dual credit courses receive a letter grade reported on both your high school and Drury University transcript. It is important that you plan on making an A or B in your dual credit course. Your grade may be included in your first semester grade point average in college.
You may drop or withdrawal from a dual credit class within in the same semester. Dropping the dual credit class does not also drop your high school class. Your signature, a parent/guardian, and high school counselor signatures are all required on the drop/withdrawal form.
After the two week deadline, the full tuition cost will be charged to your account. A "W" (withdraw) will appear on your college transcript.
To get the withdrawal form, contact the dual credit office at (417) 873-7331.
You will receive a course syllabus from your high school classroom instructor at the beginning of the semester. Keep a copy of the syllabus in case the college/university you attend requires it.
Once you complete the enrollment process, you will receive your Drury ID number by mail. This number is important when you are ordering your college transcript.
