Comingling of Students
Dual Credit and Non-Dual Credit Students in the Same Classroom
Although SACSCOC does not prohibit high schools from putting dual credit students in the same classrooms with non-dual credit students, the course material should be differentiated, with more rigorous coursework provided for students earning college credit. The college is responsible for justifying and documenting how to differentiate coursework, and for making sure the high school follows those practices.
Best practices include:
- Creating a separate syllabus for dual credit students
- Providing additional assignments for the students earning dual credit
If the course only covers college content, all students must meet the college readiness and course prerequisites prior to enrolling in the course, even if they are not earning dual credit for the course.
