How much does it cost for dual credit courses?

When your student enrolls in dual credit classes in high school they are saving you over half of the actual tuition cost of most college credit classes. Depending on the amount of hours your student is enrolled in for dual credit at TWU while attending high school, they could potentially complete their entire freshman year of classes at half the price. Here is an example:

Dual Credit Savings:

A full year of college is two semesters, not including the optional summer semester. High school students can work these classes into their normal high school schedules and earn both the high school and college credit for the same class.

As seen in the cost analysis below, it will save time and over half of the tuition cost in one semester alone!

Tuition and Fees

The cost for a three-hour credit course is $180. This is a substantial savings as the tuition and fees for TWU courses that are not part of the dual credit program is $843 per course. It is important to note that the tuition for the course does not include the cost of textbooks, which varies depending on the course. In addition to the courseís tuition, the student is responsible for the one-time application fee of $50. (Students who receive free or reduced lunch should talk with their counselor about providing a fee waiver to have the TWU application fee waived.)

What if I am home schooled?

Home school students must meet the same†eligibility requirements as students who are enrolled in a high school, but will need a parent or principal to sign the high school advantage signature form.

When do home schooled students register for classes?

Home school students must follow the same registration deadlines set for traditional college students at TWU.†

If Iím a Senior in high school, do I have to reapply for admission to attend TWU in Fall even if Iím currently enrolled in the Dual Credit Program?

Yes. Even though you may be enrolled in dual credit, you still need to reapply and submit new transcripts and SAT or ACT test scores.

How do I get a transcript for the courses Iíve taken through TWU?

You will request an official transcript†through the Registrar's office.
