A Dual Credit course is one in which you receive both high school and college credit for your course. The cost of Dual Credit courses is 1/3 of the KCTCS hourly tuition rate. There are no fees for these courses; however, you are responsible for the cost of your textbooks.
A Dual Enrollment course is one in which you only receive college credit for your course. Because high school credit is not awarded, Dual Enrollment courses do not qualify for the discounted tuition rate. You will pay the regular tuition rate, all applicable course fees, and the cost of your textbooks for these courses.
Gateway dual credit students requesting to withdrawal from a Gateway course after the first day of class must submit their request through their high school administrator. This can be the College and Career Coordinator, Guidance Counselor or any other designated administrator from the high school.
The Gateway Academic Calendar will be followed for any adding or withdrawing of courses.
The process to withdraw should be as follows:
Important: Students and parents are responsible for any tuition/textbook/course costs that have been incurred up to the point of the withdraw request. The Gateway Academic Calendar can be found on the Gateway webpage under Academics.
