Dual Credit @ DHS

Get an Early start on your future!

Basic Information:

Dual Credit classes are regular college classes that also count for high school credit. Most of the Dual Credit classes are "Gen Ed" meaning they will transfer to meet required basic classes at any NM University or College. To verify that a class will transfer out of state you must speak with the Registrar of that particular institution. Face-to-Face classes meet one day per week from 4-6:45pm or 7-9:45pm. Class will be held at the Learning Center. You must provide your own transportation.  Classes may also be taken online if the student is up to the challenge.

AXA Achievement

AXA Achievementsm helps make college possible by providing access, in the form of $1.4 million a year in scholarships, and advice, as a comprehensive resource for information to help students and parents plan for college. Why the two-pronged approach? Because, while parents named expenses as the biggest obstacle to pursuing a college degree, navigating the financial aid process came in at number two.4 AXA Achievementsm offers tools to help families plan, save and pay for college.

Additional Scholarships

At Edutude, we know that in the busy lives of teenagers, this type of less-than-thrilling research sometimes falls to the wayside.

The Scholarship contest program is centered on creating a short How-To video that demonstrates skill, knowledge, and creativity.  This is one of the easiest and fun scholarship contests that you can enter to win.  There is a total of $3,000 in award money to be given away.  The specific details and requirements of the scholarship can be found here:  https://www.plumbersstock.com/page/scholarship/
