Dual Credit Ivy Tech Community College



§  Currently, Ivy Tech partners with Munster High School to offer 25 classes for dual credit. 

§  Please note that classes are subject to change on a yearly basis due to licensing requirements.

§  Dual Credit programing is likely to shift dramatically at the conclusion of the 2021-22 school year when new regulations take effect.

§  To see a complete list of classes and pre-requisite requirements, please open the attachment below.


§  Freshmen, sophomore, junior, and senior students are eligible for enrollment pending on course load, previous dual credits, and test scores.

§  Applications for IT dual credit will take place in the classrooms.

§  Students complete the application only once.  A social security number (SSN) is required to complete the application. 

§  Teachers will receive class rosters that have been vetted for PSAT scores, GPAs, and previous credits. (Students can supply additional scores on the ACT and SAT for consideration.)

§  Teachers will report which students are interested in dual credit.

§  Students who have qualifying scores will be enrolled.

§  Students lacking qualifying scores will be issued the Accuplacer assessment to see if they can qualify.  Unfortunately, not all students will qualify for dual credit.

§  Courses have unique prerequisites.  Please review the chart below to see what is needed for a course.

§  Grade 9 and 10 students likely have to take the Accupalcer since they have yet to take a PSAT/NMSQT.


§  All courses offered through Ivy Tech are completely free to students and families.

Transferring Credits

§  Typically, Ivy Tech credits transfer without factoring into future GPAs.

§  All Ivy Tech dual credits will be listed on both the MHS and Ivy Tech Transcripts.

§  A GPA will be created within the Ivy Tech system but this GPA does not extend beyond the Ivy Tech system.  Most post-secondary institutions prefer for students to build their GPAs within their systems.

§  Ivy Tech reports whole-letter grades.  There are no pluses or minuses listed for their courses.

§  A grade of B- is recorded as B.  A grade of B+ is also recorded as B.

§  Year-long Munster courses will average grade to determine the Ivy Tech grade.

§  Advice: Students earning a C or higher should remain in dual credit classes.  Students earning less than a C should drop.

§  Please see attached documents below for previewing and ordering transcripts.

§  Transcripts will be ready in the month of July.
