Benefits of Dual Credit
EARN college credits while you are still in high school.
ENHANCE the skills required to be successful at the collegiate level such as time management, critical thinking, problem solving, study skills, communication, creativity, and following directions.
CHALLENGE yourself by taking accelerated, college-level courses that demand your highest level of performance, while gaining confidence that you are prepared for college.
SAVE time and money by entering college with completed credits, possibly shortening the time it takes to graduate.
Note: Stockton University’s dual credits are transferable to New Jersey’s public colleges and universities and most public and private institutions outside the state. It is always important to check with the admissions representative of the college or university you plan to attend to determine which courses will transfer.
