How do I get started?

The Idaho State Board of Education established the following guidelines to determine who is eligible to participate in the Dual Credit program. All applicants must:

  • Be at least 16 years of age (at the start of the semester) or have successfully completed at least one-half of the high school graduation requirements as certified by the high school.
  • Have COMPASS test scores in an acceptable range to qualify for specific courses.
  • Obtain permission from the local high school and parent to take course (letter of approval or Dual Credit approval form).
  • Complete required admissions, residency, and course registration forms.

Appeals of Admissions Standard should be forwarded to the Registrar's Office. Once accepted into a Dual Credit course, students may access any college-level class or program for which they have met the prerequisites. Admission into a Dual Credit course does not guarantee acceptance into specific classes/programs at CSI.

A Dual Credit course is a college course in all respects. The curriculum is the curricuum for the college course. The textbooks are the same books used on the college campus and grading standard is the same. All classes, regardless of the grade received, will be recorded on a CSI transcript. The grade you earn in this course will become part of your permanent college record. If you plan to apply to another college, list CSI as a college attended on your application and request that an official transcript is sent from CSi to verify previous college work.

Please check the tuition and fees website at http://www.csi.edu/tuition/ to see the reduced tuition fee per credit hour of coursework available to dual credit students. Students taking Dual Credit Classes may be eligible for scholarships. You may also be required to purchase your own textbooks and supplies.

When transferring classes, it is the student's responsibility to verify that the class taken is required by the program at the institution where the student intends to transfer.
