ADVANTAGES School International in partnership with Arizona State University

dual credit with ASU

What is your plan for college?

ADVANTAGES partners with Arizona State University to offer Universal Learner (UL) courses with ASU, an innovative and flexible way to experience college, in high school. Students can take college-level courses designed by ASU faculty and aligned with ASU degrees. Once a student has completed a course and is satisfied with the grade, they can add it to their official transcript. These dual credit courses give students a head start in college. Through the ADVANTAGES dual-credit program, students earn credit that goes toward their high school requirements, and at the same time, they also earn college credit.

Who can enroll in Dual Credit courses offered through Accelerate ASU?

UL courses with ADVANTAGES (ASI) and ASU are available to ADVANTAGES Partner School students in the 11th and 12th grades. ADVANTAGES and ADVANTAGES Partner School students must have a 3.0 GPA and must meet the prerequisites.

dual credit vs ap courses

Dual Credit vs. AP courses

AP courses allow students to take college-level courses taught by a high school teacher, with the potential for students to earn college credit and or course placement based on the results of an AP exam. Determination of scores for course placement and college credit is determined by the college/university to which the student sends the results of the AP exam. College credit is not guaranteed.

UL courses with ASU (offered in partnership with ADVANTAGES) are college-level classes facilitated by ASU instructors. These courses provide an opportunity to earn college credit while still in high school. Students taking classes for dual credit through this program should work closely with the ADVANTAGES enrollment team to ensure the appropriate courses are selected, and they can later add successful course completions to their official ASU transcript, as well as their ADVANTAGES’ transcript. Credits are widely transferable to universities around the country.
