Eve Zimmerman, dual credit coordinator at Spoon River College, has planned visits to Cuba and VIT high schools to share information about the College’s dual credit program, which allows eligible high school students to take college level courses.
Zimmerman will visit virtually with Cuba students using Googlemeets on Wednesday, March 24 at 1:30 p.m. Students who are interested should contact school counselor Logan Link for the information needed to join the meeting.
The visit with VIT will be in-person on Tuesday, March 23 from 12:45-2:15 p.m. at the high school.
Dual credit classes include transfer education courses such as English and Communications as well as career technical courses like welding and nursing assistant. They may be taught at the high school by high school teachers who have a Master degree, or at the College by college faculty.
Depending on the class and the high school, students may also be able to earn both high school and college credit for a particular class. The dual credit program offers cost savings on tuition, and scholarships are available through the SRC Foundation.
