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.
- 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.
- After you register, you will receive an email with a link to pay the tuition. Your official enrollment is not completed until you have paid. If you have questions regarding payment, please contact LFC.
- 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 in the HPHS course. In the event that your grades in the HPHS course are lower than a C, you may 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?
- After the course is completed you will receive an email that will include a link to obtain a Lake Forest College transcript, which you must send to the university/college you attend if you wish to transfer the credit.
- 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.
