Dual credit is offered for the following classes at Park Hill South High School:
- AP Chemistry
- AP Environmental Science
- AP Psychology
- AP US History
- College Algebra & College Algebra A and B
- Composition & Reading
- French III & IV
- German III & IV
- Spanish III & IV
All dual credit is offered through MCC-Maple Woods.
If your student signed up for dual credit and
decides to drop the dual credit (this does NOT affect the high school credit), the deadline to do so is March 15, 2017
. Students must have completed a Drop Form located in the Counseling Office
by that date.
If you or your student signed up for dual credit and wishes to withdraw from the dual credit portion of the course, the withdrawal date is TBA.
Tuition will still be owed for
the dual credit, but the class will NOT appear on a
MCC-Maple Woods transcript. To withdraw from the dual credit, students must complete a Withdrawal Form located in the Counseling Office.
If students do not withdraw by Nov. 10, and payment is not received by November 10, students will receive an F on their permanent MCC-Maple Woods transcript and payment is still due.
