Dual Credit

Dual credit is an opportunity for students attending an APS High School to take College level classes at CNM or UNM and earn College credit and High School Elective credit for the same class.

NOTE: If you are taking a dual credit class outside of CEC, on your own time, please consult with Ms. Alicia about your plans.  You will need approval from Ms. Alicia to take more than two dual credit classes in a semester. If you are interested in working towards an associates degree while in high school, talk with Ms. Alicia to lay out a plan during high school. If you fail a dual credit class, you are strongly encouraged to retake the course as an “F” on your college transcript could affect college admissions and scholarships.  

Visit the CEC Course Catalog for information about Dual-Credit classes offered through CEC.
