Discounted high school dual credit courses

Taking dual credit courses in high school is a great way to save time and money, but the experience should offer you more than a fantastic value and a great opportunity to jumpstart your college pathway. After all, this is your education and your future.

Under the Concordia Promise, high school students, either home schooled or at Christian schools, can enroll in online dual credit courses for a reduced tuition cost of $50 per credit hour. Learn about dual credit courses for all other students on the Admissions site.

After completion of dual credit courses, Concordia Promise students are eligible to participate in the Concordia Promise Plus. The Concordia Promise Plus is a scholarship in the amount paid for the dual credit courses that is applied toward their undergraduate tuition if the students choose to attend Concordia University Wisconsin or Ann Arbor. Essentially, students receive their first year of college completely for free.

You’ll earn both high school and college credit by taking one or more collegiate-level courses. And with our flexible online classes taught by Concordia University faculty, you can complete coursework during the school day or at home, whatever fits you best.

What is the difference between the Concordia Promise scholarship and the Concordia Promise Plus tuition back grant?

The Concordia Promise Scholarship is for students in Christian high schools or home school environments who enroll in Concordia University Dual Credit courses. The scholarship reduces the price of the already discounted Dual Credits from $200 per credit to $50 per credit. The Concordia Promise Plus is a tuition back grant for those Dual Credit students if they choose to attend Concordia University (Wisconsin or Ann Arbor) for their undergraduate degree. The tuition paid for Dual Credit courses will be credited back as a tuition back grant for those students.

Is the Concordia Promise offered by all the Concordias in the university system?

The Concordia Promise is a unique program offered by Concordia University (specifically Concordia University Wisconsin & Concordia University Ann Arbor).

What does it mean to be a partner school?

  • Consulting services from Concordia University

Who can take Dual Credit courses?

The Concordia University Dual Credit courses are designed for honors-level high school students. Eligibility requirements are listed on the Dual Credit Preliminary Agreement found here.

Will the students in the class only be from my high school?

Although the Dual Credit courses provide the same content as the courses offered to traditional undergraduate students, the Dual Credit course enrollment is limited to Dual Credit honors-level high school students. The students in each Dual Credit class are from a variety of high schools including Christian, private, public and home school environments.
