    Students may sign up for dual credit in their program areas when they complete the dual credit form with TCD staff. This form is a College of DuPage approved document and will not require a parent signature. Technology Center of DuPage collects the forms and submits them to College of DuPage for processing.

     

    Important Dual Credit Testing Information:

    • A college level or Category One score on NEXT GEN, an untimed computer-based reading exam, is required to earn dual credit with College of DuPage in Cosmetology.
      • Exemption from taking NEXT GEN  requires an SAT score of 950 or higher or an ACT composite score of 20 or higher.
      • If these scores have been met, the student DOES NOT need to take the NEXT GEN exam.
      • To be exempt from NEXT GEN, students must log into www.collegeboard.org, print their SAT or ACT score and turn into their TCD instructor.
    • If the student takes the NEXT GEN, the student must receive a score of 246 or higher and place Category 1 to earn dual credit.

     

    IMPORTANT: If your son/daughter has an Individual Education Plan (IEP) or 504 Plan and requires testing accommodations beyond extended time, parent(s)/guardian(s) should contact College of DuPage Accommodations Specialist, Rochelle Favale at 630-942-4260 to arrange for accommodations prior to testing. Students with accommodations need to test at a COD testing site to receive proper testing.
