2 TABLE OF CONTENTS Purpose State Laws & Regulations Benefits College Credit Eligibility of Students Tuition and Textbooks Course Offerings Available Student Services Policies Dual Credit is a process, dual credit is a tool, and dual credit is a solution. Dual credit amplifies the usefulness and applicability of the 11th and 12th grades, maximizes state and local educational resources, and provides a platform that fosters secondary and postsecondary collaboration and interdependence.

3 Welcome to Illinois Central College! The administration, faculty, and staff are delighted that your students have chosen to begin their college career with ICC. Whether a student, parent, or secondary school administrator or staff, we are excited to have you as part of the Dual Credit Program! Together, we will further stimulate and challenge students during their junior and senior years of high school. Dual credit classes are college classes taken by high school juniors and seniors that concurrently count as credit towards high school graduation and towards college degree requirements. Students accepted for enrollment in college-level dual credit courses must have appropriate academic qualifications, a high level of motivation and adequate time to devote to studying. This booklet has been prepared for area high schools that are interested in creating partnerships for student success. It is a great resource of our program s policies and procedures for not only the high school but also parents and students. PURPOSE OF DUAL CREDIT Illinois Central College offers college-level general education and career and technical education courses to qualified high school students in order to extend access to affordable higher education to a larger percentage of district residents, stimulate and challenge students in their junior and senior years of high school, and reduce the costs of a college education for students and their families. These courses are important links in the transition from one educational experience to another. They help to create a smoother transition from high school to college. This program is also aligned with six goals of the Illinois P-20 Initiative: 1. Improving academic achievement 2. Increasing college access and success 3. Improving use of existing data and measurements 4. Requiring greater accountability 5. Promoting lifelong learning a necessity in today s economy 6. Easing the transition to college and reducing remediation, which reduces tuition costs STATE LAWS & REGULATIONS To ensure the academic integrity of college-level courses offered by Illinois community colleges, the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) has adopted Administrative Rules pertaining to dual credit (ICCB Rule Section ). ICC endorses these rules and adheres to their intent. All state laws, ICCB regulations, accreditation standards specified by the Higher Learning Commision of the North Central Association, and local college policies apply to college-level courses offered by the college for dual credit. These policies, regulations, instructional procedures, and academic standards apply to students, faculty, and staff associated with these course. Source: The Dual Credit Quality Act (Public Act ) was approved by the Governor on August 10, 2009, with an effective date of January 1, The Act requires the Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) and the Board of Higher Education (IBHE) to develop policies regarding dual credit. 1

4 Dual credit instructors teaching college-level, credit courses must meet the same requirements as oncampus faculty, and dual credit instructors teaching career and technical education courses must have appropriate credentials and teaching competencies. High school instructors must be provided with orientation, assessment methods, and administrative requirements before teaching dual credit courses. Dual credit instructors must be able to participate in all activities available to adjunct faculty. Students must meet the same academic criteria as those enrolled in traditional college courses, including placement testing. Course content and learning outcomes must be the same as that required for traditional college courses. BENEFITS Two primary benefits as stated in the Dual Credit Task Force Report include facilitating the transition between high school and college and enhancing connections between high schools and colleges. The first benefit helps students by engaging them in college-level work and developing pathways to degree attainment, while the second benefit aids in developing alignment of curricula as well as articulation of courses. Source: Dual credit creates a partnership with many winners: Students and families win by economizing time and monetary resources for college-ready high school age students, creating a more productive senior year (and possibly junior year) experience that improves college readiness while beginning a college transcript. Illinois taxpayers win as high school graduation rates increase, college readiness improves, remediation/developmental education needs at colleges decrease, and more students begin studies in a less costly community college environment. High schools win by leveraging the senior year (and possibly junior year) to improve college readiness by offsetting instructional cost through partnering with ICC and by synchronizing curriculum with colleges. Community colleges win by engaging with students early; offering full services and support for improved planning/college readiness; beginning student transcripts while familiarizing students with college processes; increasing enrollment as well as enabling 2 student success; and improving K-12 and university partnerships to streamline services. Universities win by enrolling students with demonstrated, college-level success and improving partnerships with community colleges and K-12 schools. Future employers win by gaining an appropriately trained and credentialed workforce with college graduates aligned into great-fit career paths. Dual credit classes offer students several advantages: Students are able to earn college credit while still in high school. Students learn the rigors of college work early. They are able to adjust study habits to college work before they have to deal with the total college experience. Students are offered expanded high school course offerings. Students get a jump start on their education which may shorten the time required to complete an undergraduate degree or certificate. Students are provided a seamless transition from high school to college. Students gain confidence in dealing with college level work. Students can use their dual credit work to demonstrate their ability to complete college-level work when they apply for admission to colleges, universities, and vocational schools. Students can complete entry-level general education, elective, or career and technical college credit work at significantly lower costs than they would experience at four-year public or at private institutions of high education. COLLEGE CREDIT Students receive both high school and college credit for the Illinois Central College dual credit course. These courses are taught typically by high school instructors whose credentials qualify them to instruct at the college level. The course is offered by the high school with identical content and expectations of college-level courses. Dual credit high school courses provide opportunities for partnerships between secondary and post-secondary educational institutions by offering college level credit that serves to expand curricular offerings and reduce duplication of efforts for students. Dual credit courses are listed as college level courses on an official Illinois Central College transcript.

5 Dual credit courses, depending on the grading policies at the high school, may result in different grades being assigned for the course by the College and the high school. Although not common, this does happen occasionally. Illinois Articulation Initiative The Illinois Articulation Initiative (IAI) is a state-wide initiative that establishes comparative course relationships among state institutions to assist students who plan to transfer from a community college, including ICC, to four-year public/private colleges/universities in Illinois. (For more information see For the most part only general education courses have IAI designations and not courses in major study areas. Many of the dual credit classes being offered at the local high schools are IAI approved general education classes which do have IAI designation. Student Responsibility Students who have identified a transfer institution are encouraged to contact the institution directly to inquire about transferability of their college-level coursework. Resources to assist in this investigation may be found at ICC in the College Transitions Program Office, (309) ELIGIBILITY OF STUDENTS Students enrolling in college-level courses must satisfy course placement tests or course prerequisites when applicable to assure that they have the same qualifications and preparation as other college students. (Source: Administrative Rules of the Illinois Community College Board Pertaining to Dual Credit, Section ) This includes taking the Compass placement test and/or having a minimum ACT score. The Testing Office ( ) at ICC will work with each high school offering dual credit courses to facilitate placement testing at the high school or on the ICC campus. It is important to be aware that dual credit students are beginning their official college transcript. Grades earned in dual credit classes will be part of the student s records throughout their college career. In addition, students: Must be a junior or senior in high school. Must exhibit the maturity, social behavior, and attitude necessary for college. Must register for the class at the beginning of the semester. Students cannot secure college credit for a dual offering retroactively. 3 TUITION & TEXTBOOKS Dual credit students are responsible for payment of Illinois Central College tuition. At the present time, ICC exempts tuition for career/technical classes and students on free or reduced lunch. All dual credit courses will use the same textbook as courses offered on campus and at other off-campus sites. When a textbook or textbook edition changes, high schools have a one-term exemption to update textbook supplies. Texts can be provided by high schools or purchased by students directly from the Illinois Central College Bookstore. Some textbooks are available for rental at the ICC Bookstore. COURSE OFFERINGS Dual credit courses will be selected from transfer courses that have been articulated with senior institutions in Illinois or from the first-year courses in ICCB approved associate in applied science degree programs. As stated in the Dual Credit Quality Act: Public Act , Course content must be the same as that required for credit-bearing college courses and be appropriately measured. Mixed classes will not be offered. Mixed classes are defined by the ICCB as classes where unqualified students (those students who do not meet all the college course prerequisites) are allowed to enroll in the same section along with qualified students. All students in the dual credit section must meet the college prerequisites. Students may elect not to receive college credit, but they must meet the course prerequisites in order to be in the class. Students may not register for the college portion of the class after the enrollment period. Retroactive credit is not permitted by ICC or by the ICCB. Select online dual credit courses are being offered for the first time beginning August, (See Appendix D for suggestions to make a successful experience.) Withdrawing from Classes Students who determine, after registering for a dual credit course, that they do not want to take the course for college credit any longer may withdraw from the course until the withdrawal date (until 75% of the class has elapsed). In order to receive a refund for tuition, the student must drop by the refund date. Simply dropping the high school portion or informing the instructor does not constitute a drop from the college course. Students must complete the procedures

6 for course withdrawal. Withdrawals are accepted online at by mail, fax, or in person at Enrollment Services offices on the East Peoria Campus (L211), ICC North (Cedar Hall), Downtown Peoria Campus (Thomas Building), or ICC South in Pekin. Non-Traditional Dual Credit In addition to the traditional dual credit being offered at the high school, work-based learning programs are offered at the College. Work-based learning means instructional programs that deliberately use the workplace as a site for student learning. Work-based learning programs have formal instructional plans that directly relate students worksite learning activities to their career goals. Currently, only the Certified Nurse Assistant (CNA) program is being offered, but the College is studying other opportunities that will give the student skills to gain employment. The FastStart program is another dual credit program. This program allows students to complete their entire senior year attending ICC. Midland High School is the only participaing school at ths time, but the opportunity for other schools to offer this exists. The students are monitored by the Dual Credit Coordinator throughout the year helping the students with the transition from high school to college. SERVICES AVAILABLE TO ICC DUAL CREDIT STUDENTS ID Cards ICC provides photo student identification cards to all registered students. ID cards are issued at the beginning of each fall and spring semester in the student lounge located on the third floor of ICC s East Peoria academic building. Students may also obtain an ID card throughout the year at the East Peoria and Peoria Campus libraries as well as the East Peoria Bookstore, Enrollment Services, and at the Cedar Hall registration desk on the North Campus. ICC student ID cards are required for any process within the Student Service Center, Bookstore, or Learning Labs. The initial ID card is free, but there is a fee of $10 for replacement of a card that is lost or stolen. Replacement cards may be obtained in the East Peoria Campus Bookstore or Enrollment Services. Library Many types of learning media are available. Students are encouraged to make full use of the library s facilities for study, research, leisure reading, class preparation, and browsing. Much of the media is available for students to check out for off campus use; a student ID is required to check out these materials. Professional library assistance is accessible through a variety of ways (in person, via the phone, or online). Library services are also available from remote locations via the library web page at Academic Support Labs The Studio offers ICC students one-on-one help with papers at any level for any class. The Studio consultants use personalized writing strategies to work with individual learning styles. This creative, fun space is the ideal place on campus for idea generation, drafting, and revision help. Technology offered at The Studio includes computers with wireless internet access, laptops, and a MediaScape display. In addition to one-on-one assistance, The Studio offers useful, hand-on workshops on a variety of writing issues. Students are encouraged to call ahead (309/ ) to schedule a 30-minute consultation, but walk-ins are also welcome. The Mathematics Lab provides free tutorial help to math students at all levels. The Math Lab is staffed by both faculty tutors and student tutors willing to help ICC math students on an individual basis. No appointment is necessary. The Math Lab also offers individualized, self-paced courses in computational mathematics: arithmetic of whole numbers, fractions, decimals, percents, introduction to algebra, and introduction of geometry. The Learning Labs offer academic assistance to ICC students. Services include tutoring, computer assisted learning, supplemental materials, internet research, Blackboard (ICC s online course management system), and study tips. The Perley and North Campus Learning Labs also provide testing and career services. Labs are open every day that classes are in session. Hours and tutoring schedules are found on the ICC web site at Click on Current Students, and then Academic Support. Tutor schedules and study tips are also posted in Blackboard under Learning Labs. 4

7 ILLINOIS CENTRAL COLLEGE POLICIES Code of Conduct Students are expected to meet the conduct requirements of the facility in which the course is being held. Each student assumes an obligation to act in accordance with generally acceptable standards of responsible adult behavior, which include respect for other students and other members of the learning community. Students remain subject to federal, state and local laws; violation of these laws may lead to prosecution by agencies or persons, in addition to disciplinary action by the College. Attendance Regular attendance at all class meetings and laboratory sessions is expected of all students. Faculty members may establish attendance policies and/or makeup procedures for their classes. Some programs have established rigid attendance policies. It is the student s responsibility to be aware of attendance policies and makeup procedures. Academic Misconduct Matters relating to academic honesty or contrary action such as cheating, plagiarism, or giving unauthorized help on examinations or assignments may result in an instructor giving a student a failing grade for the assignment, test, or for the course. Plagiarism: This is the use (whether deliberate or unintentional) of an idea or phrase from another source without proper acknowledgment of that source. Another form of plagiarism is copying or obtaining information from another student. Submission of written work, such as laboratory reports, computer programs, or papers which have been copied from the work of other students, with or without their knowledge and consent, is plagiarism. Penalties for violation of academic integrity vary from individual course sanctions up to expulsion from the College. Understand Related Financial Aid Implications There are three areas in which dual credit students must be mindful of future financial aid consequences. Dual credit courses are recorded on the student s transcript and are, therefore, evaluated in determining eligibility for financial aid. The student must meet all three progress requirements: 1. Completion rate 2. Grade point average 3. Maximum time frame to remain in good standing Student s Right to Privacy and Access to Records Dual credit students are considered ICC students in every way as related to their academic record. According to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, students have the right to the following: 1. Inspect and review their educational records. 2. Request the amendment of their education records to ensure that they are not inaccurate, misleading or otherwise in violation of the student s privacy or other rights. 3. Restrict disclosure of information to other individuals or entities. 4. File a complaint with the FERPA Office if the College fails to comply with the requirements of the Act. ICC considers the following directory information: 1. Student s full name. 2. Affirmation of student enrollment status (full/part-time) and class level. 3. Dates of attendance, graduation, degree(s), certificate(s), and honors received. 4. Pertinent information relating to participation in officially recognized activities and sports. ICC will only disclose directory information to individuals or entities with legitimate education interests. Student schedules, grades, and other academic information will not be released to parents or guardians without written consent of the student. To restrict disclosure of directory information or to authorize release to specific individuals, students must contact Enrollment Services (309) Contact Information For information concerning classes offered at your high school, please contact your counselor. All registrations must come directly from the high school. For general information about dual credit contact Illinois Central College Dual Credit Coordinator (309)
