Dual Credit Experience Information
History and Mission
The Holy Cross Dual Credit Program, operated under a partnership with Our Lady of the Lake University, is designed to expose excellent students to college level classes while earning credit for both institutions.
Embarking on its 6th year of this current version, we continue to offer classes open to any freshman at Our Lady of the Lake University. While we concentrate on their high school graduation requirements in the Spanish and Social Studies departments first, students are encouraged to take other courses when their schedule allows. Students usually take 2 courses a semester and can begin in the summer between their sophomore and junior years of study.
Each course costs $250.
Books are a separate charge through OLLU at a discounted rate
Courses count towards high school graduation AND will appear on the students’ college transcript.
Courses are transferable to any college that the student chooses to attend.
For the 2021-2022 school year, unless otherwise instructed, courses are expected to be held on the Our Lady of the Lake University campus. Transportation will be provided by Holy Cross.
