Tech Prep - Dual Credit allows students to earn both high school and community/technical college credit for completing high school courses. For earning a grade of "B" (3.0) or higher in select high school classes, students can earn community/technical college credits. To qualify, students must meet specific requirements established by the college and high school instructors. College credits are free. Credits are posted to transcripts during the summer following the school year in which they were earned. Credits appear on the transcript just as credits earned on the community/technical college campus.
Through Pierce County Careers Connection (PC3) and the South King County Tech Prep Consortium (SKCTP), Sumner School District students can earn credits from Bates Technical College, Clover Park Technical College, Green River Community College, Highline Community College, Pierce College, Renton Technical College, or Tacoma Community College.
