Dual and Transfer Credits
NCTC Dual Credit Course Equivalencies
*Please Note: Students in their junior and senior year and on track to graduate may request to substitute up to two Calvary course with their equivalent dual credit course(s) to be applied toward graduation requirements. Only courses listed on this Course Equivalencies Guide will be accepted for dual credit through NCTC. Students are responsible for meeting prerequisites for each course. It is also the student’s responsibility to enroll and register at NCTC and complete all the requirements for acceptance. Some classes are only offered in specific semesters. Courses taken for dual credit will incur a $100 processing fee per semester to DCA.
Transferring High School Students
Students must submit transcripts or, in the case of home school students, a listing of courses taken prior to admittance. All prior course work must be submitted for approval using the method set forth in the Guidelines for Transfer Credit and should be approved by the academic committee before the first day of class. All transferring high school students must fulfill the requirements for all course work as determined by DCA. Any student who does not meet the requirements must fulfill the requirement by completing the appropriate course at Denton Calvary.
Guidelines for Transfer Credit
Calvary students may choose to take one course off campus each academic school year. Students must follow the procedure for requesting transfer credit detailed in the guidelines below. It is the responsibility of the Denton Calvary family to follow these policies and fulfill all requirements. Failure to follow policies, fulfill requirements, or submit complete and accurate documentation will result in the course’s not receiving approval and may cause the student not to graduate.
From an accredited or private school:
To meet the school’s criteria, a transfer credit must have a passing final grade and either:
[Texas Tech University Division of Outreach and Distance Education: Texas Tech University provides correspondence courses for most subjects in grades K-12. High School transfer credits earned through this method would be treated as other credits earned from accredited high schools. See the following website for more information about courses offered: www.ode.ttu.edu]
- Be a credit-bearing class from an accredited high school, which is equivalent in content, level, and rigor to the required Denton Calvary course; or
- Be a class from a private school which is equivalent to a class offered Denton Calvary. (The Academic Committee reserves the right to verify that the course content is equivalent to that required at Denton Calvary.)
From a home school format:
To meet the school’s criteria and receive credit, a transfer course must have a passing final grade and:
- Use a standard high school level textbook (not merely a fill-in-the-blank workbook approach, unless deemed by the academic committee appropriate for the subject matter.)
- Use of regular closed-book tests or essays, projects, research papers, and so forth, dependent upon the level and type of course material.
- Proof that the time spent and material covered is equivalent to Denton Calvary’s expected levels of study and performance. One credit is given after the satisfactory completion of two separate semesters in any one class. Example: For academic courses at Denton Calvary, one-half credit is equal to 48 hours of actual in-class instruction time, plus 48 hours of out-of-class time. So, in one school year (two complete separate semesters), a minimum of 96 hours of instruction time is required for the full credit.
Procedure for Requesting Transfer Credit
- Transfer courses are accepted on a semester basis only.
- Complete and submit a “Request for Transfer Credit” form by the second week of Calvary’s semester. (See Academic Advisor for form)
- Meet with the Academic Advisor to discuss the proposed plan for accomplishing the course objectives and requirements.
- Upon approval by Academic Committee, the student may begin the course semester using the approved curriculum. [Changes made to plan after Academic Committee approval must again be approved by the Academic Committee.]
- Instructor must maintain weekly lesson plans detailing the scope and sequence covered.
- Upon completion of course semester, the “Course Approval” form must be submitted to the Academic Advisor along with the weekly lesson plans, copies of a final exam and/or the last sequential tests given, and any papers written showing critical thinking skills. [These are due by the last class day of each semester, or two weeks before graduation for seniors.]
- After all requirements are completed and turned in to the Academic Advisor, the Academic Committee will meet to determine if the course semester has met the requirements put forth by DCA. [Approval of the course semester will result in the student’s receiving transfer credit and allowing him to proceed to the next course in the sequence, if needed. Failure to follow the guidelines put forth by DCA will result in the refusal of the course semester for credit and will require the student to take said course at DCA to fulfill the required credit.]
- DCA retains the right to require a comprehensive exam to verify mastery of course objectives/content or a writing assignment to demonstrate critical thinking skills as deemed necessary by DCA.
