College Release/Dual Credit
Students interested in taking college classes during the school day at AHS (concurrent enrollment) or off campus during the night or summer (dual credit) MUST meet with their counselor first to discuss the process and obtain the appropriate paperwork.
High school students may take courses from Butler Community College for credit if they meet the following requirements:
- Are classified as a sophomore, junior, or senior by the standards where the student attends high school.
- Have a High School/Home School Release Form signed by the high school PRINCIPAL certifying the student is at least a sophomore. This form should be turned in to the Registrar’s Office before enrollment takes place. Butler requires only one permission form per academic year, but individual high schools may require one each semester.
- Meet placement score requirements (ACT, SAT or ACCUPLACER). Scores must be certified on the High School/Home School Release Form prior to submission to the Registrar’s Office.
- Are classified as a gifted student in his/her freshman level of high school. A copy of the Individual Education Program (IEP) and a High School/Home School Release Form signed by the high school PRINCIPAL certifying giftedness, must be turned into the Registrar’s Office before enrollment takes place.
Note: High school students who are below the sophomore level or who do not have IEPs can only enroll in college courses for audit (noncredit). Student must meet placement score requirements.
