Dual Credit Courses

Bishop Ward is proud to offer a dual-credit option for high-achieving students to earn college credit in certain courses while in high school.  All classes are taught at Bishop Ward.

College credit reciprocity is up to the review and the discretion of the college or university your student plans to attend.  Please have your student research their intended major and university in discerning taking a course for college credit. All students must earn a minimum C average to receive credit.  CollegeBoard.org is a helpful website to view college profiles.

Please review the Bishop Ward courses below to see if your student has the course in their schedule for this year. If your student is taking a class below, please discuss the option of taking the course for college credit.  Instructors and counselor will speak to the individual classes with this information as well when school begins. Please contact the school with any questions at 913.371.1201 

Cost
Donnelly College Course: Thanks to an exclusive partnership, Bishop Ward provides students the opportunity to earn up to 24 college credit hours from Donnelly College at no additional cost to them. Bishop Ward students do not pay additional fees for taking Donnelly college courses - it is a part of Bishop Ward student tuition.


Requesting a Transcript
If the student passes with the minimum C requirement, they need to request this course transcript from the school they took the course from, and not Bishop Ward.

Current Seniors: Request your transcript from your counselors and make sure to fill out the form at the last senior meeting to verify where you would like your final transcript sent.

Alumni: Request your transcript from the registrar. The cost is $3. Call 913.371.1201 to request your transcript.
