• Dual Credit

    Upper classmen students who demonstrate mastery of skills at New Tech may be eligible to participate in dual credit opportunities with the College of Lake County.  Students may earn college credits or college placement while completing their high school requirements.

    To be eligible for dual enrollment, students must meet the College of Lake County's enrollment requirements and complete the College of Lake County's application process.  The testing and application process begin in a student's Sophomore year with the assistance of our School Counselor.

    Dual enrollment can produce tangible savings in both time and money and the potential to graduate college and enter the job market earlier.
