3 Guidelines The Dual Credit Program at Purdue University requires that both teachers and students meet certain guidelines to participate. Failure to meet these guidelines will result in the inability to teach dual credit courses, or in the inability for a student to receive dual credit. Please be sure that all teachers and students meet the guidelines contained within this document prior to applying for the Dual Credit Program at Purdue University. Student Requirements Students are required to meet course prerequisites as well as GPA prerequisites prior to applying for the Dual Credit Program. These prerequisites are outlined, below: 1) Be admissible under Purdue s holistic admissions requirements (see 2) Completion of one year of high school Biology with a grade of C or above 3) Completion of one year of high school Chemistry or Integrated Chemistry-Physics with a grade of C or above 4) Minimum 2.50/4.00 high school GPA Students must meet all four of these prerequisites prior to applying for the Dual Credit Program. Clarification of each requirement is listed, below: 1) Students with poor academic records, who have demonstrated they are not ready for college-level work, may be denied admission. More information about the holistic review process can be found on the Office of Admissions website. 2) Students must earn a minimum grade of C in any, and all, applicable semesters that Biology and Chemistry/Integrated Chemistry have been completed. Grades are not averaged, therefore a student with a D in first semester, and an A in second semester, will not be admitted. However, a student with a C in first semester and a C in second semester may be admitted (provided the student meets all other prerequisites). 3) Chemistry and Integrated Chemistry-Physics may be combined, however not advised. For example, while Purdue would prefer a student to take the same course in both semesters (i.e., Chemistry in first semester, and Chemistry in second semester) a student may take Chemistry first semester, and Integrated Chemistry-Physics second semester to satisfy this prerequisite. 4) GPAs must be factored on a 4.00 scale. For schools who factor on a different scale (such as 9.00 or 11.00), the Office of Admissions will adjust to the 4.00 scale when making an admissions decision. Teacher Requirements To be approved to teach Agriculture Dual Credit courses, teachers must be licensed Agriculture Science and Business teachers (ANSC 10600, BTNY 11000, FS 16100) or licensed Family and

High School Requirements Each year, the high school is required to submit a High School Articulation Agreement and Course Approval/Registration Form.

Once all students have been admitted, the Purdue University Office of the Registrar will register the student for the appropriate Purdue University course. It is important that students list the specific course that they are applying for, when filling out their application. If the student is enrolling in multiple Dual Credit courses, the student should indicate this on his/her application. Dual Credit course options are as follows: ANSC (Biology Companion Animals) BTNY (Introduction to Plant Science) FS (Science of Food) Payment Once a student is registered for a Purdue University course, a tuition bill is generated.
