Camden Schools Primary Admissions Essay

High School Plus Program

The High School Plus program (dual credit) is designed to accelerate student achievement by awarding college credits for college-level work completed while in high school.

The program offers freshman-level college courses. The courses approved for college credit are usually Honors or AP high school courses that have been certified as containing all the components of the college-level course for which credit will be awarded. For example, a student taking high school Physics will receive high school credit and four (4) Camden County College credits.

It should be understood that no college, including Camden County College, can absolutely guarantee the transferability of its credits to another institution. Ultimately, transferability is up to each institution from which the student is seeking credit and any questions should be directed to that institution.
