Concurrent Enrollment/Dual Credit

Course Delivery Methods

Distance Education

Courses taught by Missouri Western faculty to high school students for dual credit. There are three categories:

Combines video lectures from a Missouri Western faculty member and the skills of the high school teacher.

Consists of videotaped lectures with online course management for assignments, tests and other communication.


Online options can include online university courses where high school students are simultaneously enrolled with our regular university students.

NOTE: Distance education courses are designed specifically to meet the needs of schools where teachers do not meet the requirements to teach dual credit coursework.
