It is important that students and their parent(s)/guardian(s) understand the potential impact/consequences of the AP/Dual Credit course(s) both now and in the future.
Dual Credit Information:
Please know that if you are taking an AP/Dual Credit course and you're taking it for Dual Credit, you need to know that the grade you receive in that course will impact both your high school AND college transcript. *Your transcripts are permanent! It will be your responsibility to know whether or not the college credits will transfer to the college or university you are planning to attend. Students receiving Dual Credit will earn college credits from BSC, and BSC credits transfer within the North Dakota University System (NDUS) (the NDUS does not include ND private or tribal colleges/universities). Please be aware that when you take a dual credit course at Legacy, you are considered a student at both Legacy and BSC. You can visit THIS website for more information regarding Dual Credit.
