Dual (College) Credit
Trinity students can earn college credit for 25 courses at Trinity through our partnership with Colorado Christian University. Taking college credit courses at Trinity and AP courses allow for some flexibility in college. Beginning college with 30-40 units or more can allow a student-athlete to take fewer units during their athletic season, or for a student to double-major and still get out in four years. Some have started a master's degree program earlier and been able to finish their advanced degree in a shorter time period, while others have graduated college in only three years, saving families an entire year of college tuition, room and board.
Dual credit courses must be approved by the institution offering the credit and it's a rigorous process that requires the course be demonstrated to be a college-level course taught by a highly qualified instructor. Curriculum, sample coursework and instructor's qualifications are submitted and approved. Trinity doesn't change anything about the course. The student takes the course, pays the fee to the college, and gets credit on their high school transcript as well as a college transcript with units credited.
For a fee of $200 per course, students can register through Colorado Christian University for courses that would typically cost $1800 or more at competitive colleges. These credits are accepted by over 650 colleges and universities nationwide.
