CTE Dual Credit

A dual-credit national educational program, CTE Dual Credit (formerly Tech Prep) awards community college workforce educational credit by recognizing comparable learning in the high school. CTE Dual Credit is a partnership between the Seattle Colleges and Seattle Public Schools. It is designed for high school students who plan a career that will require a certificate or an Associate of Applied Science degree from a community college. It strives to avoid duplicating curriculum content, sets high academic standards and prepares students to meet real-world career demands.

CTE Dual Credit courses are open to all students, but only those who complete the CTE Dual Credit course and registration requirements will qualify for college credit. Students should contact an advisor to see if their high school learning can qualify them for CTE Dual Credit college credit.
