Earn college credit while in high school with dual credit.

Dual credit is a program that allows qualified high school students to enroll in college level classes that earn both high school and college credit. The program is operated jointly by the high school and Metropolitan Community College-Kansas City, and students receive credit at both institutions upon successful completion of dual credit courses. These courses are primarily taught at the high school by high school instructors.

The enrollment steps are as follows:

  1. Complete an online application for admission to MCC

    1. Students who have not applied for admission will not be able to test or be enrolled. The MCC ID generated from the application is required on the ITE (intent to enroll) prior to submission.

Applicants will receive an e-mail at the e-mail address they provide on the application; this will contain their MCC Student ID number and temporary password to access their myMCCKC student account.
