Dual Credit

Dual credit is a partnership between IỊisaġvik College and the North Slope Borough School District. This program allows eligible students to earn both college and high school credit for courses they take at the college while still in high school.


To be eligible, high school students must be juniors or seniors, have passed the High School Qualifying Exam (HSQE), and have a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0. With written approval from the student’s parent or guardian and the designated North Slope Borough School District official, students may enroll for courses at the 100 level with IỊisaġvik College. Seniors may enroll for up to six credit hours per semester. Juniors may enroll for up to four credit hours per semester. Students must meet all prerequisites for the courses for which they wish to register, unless waived by the Dean of Instruction upon the recommendation of the school district. Upon the request of the school district, the Dean may permit students to enroll in courses below the 100 level. Qualified high school students are allowed to enroll in courses not available to them through the North Slope Borough School District.


Dual credit applicants must:

  • Meet the above eligibility criteria.
  • Complete the Dual Credit and Records Release Application for High School Students.
  • Submit an unofficial high school transcript.
  • Submit the completed and signed Dual Credit and Records Release Application form to the IỊisaġvik College Registrar’s Office at the time of registration.

A student registering for an English or mathematics course is also required to take a placement exam prior to enrollment.

By signing the Dual Credit and Records Release Application, the student and parent or guardian gives the college permission to release the student’s academic record to the North Slope Borough School District.

While attending IỊisaġvik College, the student will be expected to adhere to all policies of the college.

Dual credit students will be referred to an advisor from the Academic department for advising concerning transferable college courses.
