Information for Educators

Skagit Valley College’s CTE Dual Credit program is a cooperative program between local school districts and Skagit Valley College (SVC). This dual credit program allows 9th through 12th grade students the opportunity to earn SVC college credit while simultaneously earning high school credit in approved high school courses. Courses are college-level and equivalent to SVC courses in outcomes, instruction, and pedagogy. Students who enroll in the program and satisfy course requirements will have their coursework posted to an SVC transcript with the grade they earned in the course.

Instructor Eligibility

Teachers must be CTE certified to offer CTE Dual Credit courses.

Course Articulation Process

To articulate a course for CTE Dual Credit:

  1. The college and school district must have a contract in place, or commit to signing one in the future (there is a cost for school districts to participate in the program).
  2. The high school teacher must be CTE certified.
  3. The high school course must be equivalent to the SVC course, including but not limited to: meeting the College’s course outcomes, grading standards, theoretical, and pedagogical standards.
    1. The high school teacher should review the SVC course catalog for courses they are interested in articulating.
  4. If the teacher finds a course they would like to align with, they will need to modify their syllabus to include all SVC Learning Outcomes and meet the requirements listed in the CTE Syllabus Review Form.
  5. Teachers should submit their modified syllabus, a sample assessment, and Section 1 of the CTE Course Review Form to [email protected] for review.
