Kimm in WA Posted May 18, 2008 Share Posted May 18, 2008 DS is planning on doing dual enrollment in 11th and 12th. This coming year (10th) will be his last FT year at home and I'm trying to figure out what to do and what to omit. I was planning that for math and science he'd do Chalkdust Pre-Calc. & Physics (we're doing Apologia and it looks like on this board the recommendation is to do both Apologia books in 1 year). Not sure where he'd attend after dual enrollment. He hopes to finish his AA at the CC in the 2 yrs. and then transfer to Univ. of Washington (UW). I was looking on the UW website and they don't give credit for CLEP exams. My question is this: IF CC allows CLEP credits and son receives an AA wouldn't all this transfer b/c he'd completed his degree? I know this is a bit risky, as he may not finish the AA in 2 yrs. of dual enrollment and then the CLEP credits wouldn't transfer. I'm trying to figure out how he can test out of some of the requirments in non-math/science courses. The CC also says they give credits for scores of 3 and above in AP exams. So, would you who have BTDT recommend this? I would have him try 1 or 2 non-math/science. Isn't 15 credits "usual" for college?The first quarter of the pre-engineering AA has him taking 18: Gen. Chem Lecture 3 cr. " Chem Lab 2 Engl. Comp 5 Anal/Geo Calculus I 5 Humanity Elective 3 Subsequent quarters all the way through have 18 credits, except for one quarter w/ 15 credits. TIA for any wisdom/advice, Kimm in WA Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
