Lincoln Land Community College partners with in-district high schools to provide dual credit opportunities for high school juniors and seniors. The goals of dual credit partnerships include the following:

  • To provide educational opportunities for high school students in the Lincoln Land Community College (LLCC) district;
  • To enhance the current high school curriculum;
  • To address students’ unique interests, abilities, and attitudes;
  • To prepare students for work and/or further educational endeavors; and
  • To improve the transition of students from high school to college.


  • Courses are tuition-free for students taking a dual credit course taught during the high school day by a high school instructor as part of the regular teaching load.
  • Students get a head start on their college education.
  • Dual credit entices students not to choose early graduation.
  • Students who take college-level courses while in a high school adapt more easily to college curriculum.
  • Courses offered in district high schools make college more accessible to area high school students.
  • The Dual Credit Program provides an incentive for students to pursue a college degree when financial obstacles might otherwise prevent them from doing so.
  • Enrollment in the Dual Credit Program can reduce the students’ costs in tuition payment after they complete high school and enroll in a college or university.
  • Credit earned is posted as college credit on an official LLCC transcript.
  • Courses are college-level courses and are of the same high quality, cover the same content, and have the same rigor as courses offered at the college’s main campus or regional locations.
  • Courses can be taken for college and high school credit.
  • Students must enroll as LLCC students.
  • Students will be subject to all LLCC placement, enrollment, grading, and records policies and procedures.
  • All instructors of dual credit courses must meet Illinois Community College Board (ICCB) and LLCC qualifications.
  • Dual credit courses use LLCC textbooks and outlines (unless otherwise approved by an LLCC Dean).
