Dual Credit Courses
Assumption’s partnership with Kentucky state universities provides students the opportunity to take a course designed by our highly qualified teachers. This coursework has also been reviewed and approved by the partner universities who qualify it as equitable to the instruction that is happening on their college campuses.
As a result, our students are able to earn college credit from our partner universities while in Assumption classrooms without the necessity of an additional exam.
Assumption students are currently earning 1,316 dual credit hours during the 2018-2019 school year.
Scholarships provided by the Kentucky Higher Education Assistance Authority (KHEAA) allow each student to cover the cost of up to two dual credit courses. These scholarships increase the affordability of this option which are already a cost effective way to earn college credit. Our partner universities currently only charge $54 per credit hour which is less than one-third the cost of the course on any state university campus.
By Kentucky state law, Kentucky state universities must award credit for hours earned and Assumption graduates regularly transfer these credits to universities and colleges nationwide.
Assumption partners with the University of Louisville, Western Kentucky University, and Jefferson Community and Technical College.
Assumption offers the most dual credit courses of any Catholic high school in Louisville.
