Prospective Dual Credit Students

Thinking Of Becoming A Dual Credit Student?

Are you interested in getting a head start on college? Do you attend one of our partnering schools? If so, Nevada State’s Dual Credit Program may be an excellent fit. In this program, you can earn Nevada State College and high school credit simultaneously without leaving your high school.

To be eligible to participate in the Nevada State College Dual Credit Program, you must meet the following criteria:

  • Cumulative unweighted 3.0 GPA
  • Recommendation of high school teachers or counselor
  • Permission of parent/guardian

If you are wondering if participating in Dual Credit is right for you, we encourage you to speak with your guidance counselor. We work closely with the counselors in each partnering school so that they can assist you.

Notably there is no application fee. All classes (even 4 credit courses) cost $75. The cost per credit is over 80% less than traditional college students pay per credit for attending Nevada State. The tuition should be paid to your high school.

Applying to the Dual Credit Program

Each high school will provide prospective students with a link to apply online.  If you already have an NSHE ID number, please enter it on the application.

Once the form is completed, you will receive an email verifying your account has been created. This email contains the NSHE ID number and password students will need to register for classes. Make sure you do not lose this information – you will need it later. If you have any questions about the new student application, please contact for help.
