    Dual Enrollment courses count toward a college grade point average (GPA) and hours attempted/earned on a permanent college transcript.

    At the end of the course, credit is earned by satisfaction completion of a "C" or higher, and it will transfer to public South Carolina institutions provided that the course is listed on the SC University Transferrable Courses.

    If the student is planning to attend a private institution in South Carolina or any public or private institutions outside of South Carolina, students should contact that school to see how the course credit will be accepted toward their degree requirements.
