TAP Credit & Dual Enrollment

A great option for everyone!

Dual Enrollment courses are an excellent way for students to earn college and high school credit at the same time! Students who chose this route typically spend a fraction of what they would taking these courses after graduation.

At the Pickens County Career & Technology Center, several programs have Dual Enrollment pathways which set students up for success after graduation.

In addition to Dual Enrollment, a few of our programs offer TAP credit as well.
