Dual Credit Courses with Lake Forest College:

    We are excited to announce the opportunity for students to earn college credit hours through enrollment in select Spanish courses!

    Highland Park High School has partnered with Lake Forest College to offer Spanish V and Spanish Senior Seminar Honors as dual credit courses.

    Key Details:

    • When can I opt in?
    • How does this work?
      • You will be dual enrolled in a Lake Forest College (LFC) and Highland Park High School course (HPHS).
    • How much does it cost?
      • The fee is $300 for 4 credit hours, which is typically equivalent to a one-semester class at the university/college level. Also, for perspective, one class at a university/college could cost as much as $2000.
      • Payment is due at the time of registration (via credit card).
    • What grade do I need to earn dual credit?
      • A letter grade of a C or better is recommended for both semesters to opt for dual credit. The LFC transcript grade will be an average of the percentages of the two semester grades on the HPHS course. In the event that your grades on the HPHS course are lower than a C, you should consider the next option.
      • If you wish to withdraw from the dual credit course, you should notify Lake Forest College any time before the last class day. If you withdraw, there is no refund and your transcript will show a “W”.
    • How do I receive credit?
      • Starting in July 2024, you can order a Lake Forest College transcript that shows your dual credit course. If you want to transfer this credit to another college/university, you must order the transcript and have it sent to that institution. Instructions for ordering the transcript are found at the bottom of this page: https://www.lakeforest.edu/academics/dual-credit-classes
    • Do I have to enroll in dual credit?
      • No, but it is a great opportunity to recognize your commitment to language studies! The curriculum is advanced and rigorous. Thus, whether or not you opt in for dual credit, you will be doing the same work and will have the same expectations.
