[Infographic] Managing a Dual Credit Program with TEL

by | Apr 7, 2021 | Counselor Resources

The idea behind dual credit is simple: high school students take courses for college credit while also completing their high school requirements at the same time. But the process for enrolling and managing a dual credit program can be a little daunting for a counselor who is juggling multiple priorities.

Here is the process for working with TEL for dual credit:

Course Selection:

The school selects courses from the provider to make available to its students. Depending on the provider, the school may also need to designate the partner college or university from which students will take their courses.


Based on any qualifications the school might have in place, the school enrolls students in one or more courses for a term by sending over the names and emails of the interested students. Schools and students are allowed a period in which students may be added to or dropped from courses without being charged.


Terms may vary across providers, but typically schools are invoiced for the students who are enrolled in courses after the allotted add-drop period.

Completion and Transcription:

When your student completes your course, you will receive instructions from the institution your school selected about requesting an official transcript for your student’s credit.

At TEL, we make the process easy with a dedicated Account Management team to guide you through the enrollment process. We’re there to answer questions about adding and dropping students, and you can get access to view reports on how students are progressing through the course.
