Drury University’s Dual Credit program allows high school students to take seated classes during regular school hours or online. Students earn both high school and university credit at a reduced rate. The cost for Drury courses is $70 per credit hour. For course information, please see your counselor. If you have questions about Dual Credit, please contact Beth Nation at firstname.lastname@example.org, Carol Pope at email@example.com or call (417) 873-7331.
The Dual Credit Program allows high school students, while still attending their local school, the opportunity to enroll in and receive both high school and college credit during normal class hours. Participation in the dual credit program enables high school students to get a “head start” on their college career as well as prepare them for the challenges of college courses. Credits earned under these programs will be applicable towards a degree at Crowder College and are generally transferable to other colleges and universities. They offer a few (3 -5) scholarships each semester to their DC/DE students. The cost for Crowder courses is $ 65 per credit hour.
