Important Information Regarding COVID-19

For online dual credit students

Online dual credit courses will start again on March 30 and continue until the end of the semester. Because your high school may not be back in session by March 30, you may learn of students who cannot fully participate in their online, dual credit course after this date. Please bring these students to the attention of the dual credit counselor in your building and to the Drury DC Coordinator, Beth Nation. The high school counselor and Beth will work together to do what is best for the student in this situation.  

For seated dual credit students

Seated (students taking dual credit courses at high schools) dual credit students will follow the guidelines and expectations set forth by your district’s superintendent and building administrators. When your district leaders make the decision to return to school, your seated, dual credit students will continue the work in their seated, dual credit class. 

Cost of Dual Credit Courses and Payment Options

Seated classes at your high school are $70 per credit hour.

Online classes are $90 per credit hour.
