Brentwood High School offers several College Credit Courses through the University of Missouri - St. Louis (UMSL), St. Louis Community College (STLCC), Lindenwood University, the Advanced Placement (AP) Program, the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) Program, and select Launch classes.
Please refer to the Brentwood High School College Credit Options 2023-2024 worksheet for information on dual credit course options, registration, cost, and transferability.
Cost, Academic Eligibility, and Registration Information
Juniors and seniors must have a 3.0 GPA in order to automatically participate in the UMSL Advanced Credit Program; students who have a 2.5 GPA can still participate with special permissions; students can find registration and cost information online at https://www.umsl.edu/continuinged/acp/register.html.
Seniors and juniors with a 2.5 GPA or higher or sophomores with a 3.0 GPA or higher can participate in the STLCC dual credit program; students must also meet reading proficiency requirements (students can meet this requirement by earning an A in their last semester of English or a B in their last two semesters of English or an ACT reading score of 18 or higher; students who do not meet reading proficiency based on these criteria should talk to their College and Career Advisor about other options). Students can find registration and cost information online at https://stlcc.edu/admissions/apply-to-stlcc/dual-credit.aspx. Students who qualify for the Jumpstart Scholarship at STLCC can take up to 6 credit hours of dual credit each semester for free. The Jumpstart Scholarship is automatically awarded to students who have a 2.6 GPA or higher and who are free/reduced lunch eligible. STUDENTS MUST APPLY AND QUALIFY FOR THE FREE/REDUCED LUNCH PROGRAM BY THE STLCC DUAL CREDIT REGISTRATION DEADLINE.
Students must have a 3.0 GPA in order to receive dual credit through Lindenwood University; in addition, students who are in the 10th grade, also need a signed letter of recommendation from their principal/counselor and written permission from a parent or legal guardian. The student must complete the Early College Start application for admission, which can be found on Lindenwood’s Early College Start webpage: https://www.lindenwood.edu/policies/list/early-college-start-ecs/.
Students enrolled in dual credit through UMSL, STLCC, Lindenwood or another approved Missouri college or university can apply for a scholarship through the Missouri Department of Higher Education. For more information on the application, requirements, and deadlines for each semester, visit https://dhewd.mo.gov/ppc/grants/dcdeforstudents.htm.
For BHS classes that offer multiple college credit options, only register for one--either through UMSL or STLCC, not both for the same HS course.
Fees associated with the AP, PLTW, and Launch college credit programs will vary. Students should refer to the appropriate websites.
Cost, academic eligibility, and registration information is subject to change by the partner colleges; always check with our partner colleges for the most up-to-date and accurate information
Student Responsibility for Transfer of Dual Credit:
Per the BHS Course Enrollment Guide, it is the responsibility of the student to inquire about the acceptance of transferring dual credits to colleges they may wish to attend upon graduation. Students must inquire directly with colleges and/or universities which are being considered.
Once a student has graduated from Brentwood, the student will need to contact the registrar's office at the UMSL, STLCC, or Lindenwood (depending on which courses were taken) and have a transcript sent to the college they will attend.)
**CORE 42: CORE 42 is a framework for general education that all Missouri public two-and four-year institutions of higher education adopted effective for the 2018-2019 academic year. The goal of the CORE 42 is to facilitate the seamless transfer of academic credits. The completion of the CORE 42 at any public institution of higher education will transfer to every other public institution of higher education in the state and substitute for the receiving institution’s general education requirement. Individual courses that comprise the CORE 42 are guaranteed to transfer one-to-one among all public (and participating independent) colleges and universities in Missouri. For more information, visit https://dhewd.mo.gov/core42.php. Please note that just because a course is not part of CORE 42 does not mean it will not transfer; the majority of college credit classes will transfer, but it is the student’s responsibility to research transferability.
