Dual Credit

Hazard Community and Technical College (HCTC) offers a Dual Credit program in partnership between the Kentucky Community and Technical College System (KCTCS) and the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE). This program provides high school students the opportunity to earn college credits while completing their high school requirements. If you are a high school junior or senior, you can enroll in selected college courses.


  • Gives you a step ahead into college life and the skills needed to succeed.
  • Lowers the cost of your overall college education.
  • Reduces the amount of time it takes to complete a college degree after high school.
  • Increases student matriculation from high school to college.
  • Enhances college and career readiness.


HCTC offers two Dual Credit funding options:

  • Courses taught by HCTC instructors--tuition is based on the HCTC tuition rate per credit hour. Students enrolled in these courses will receive an HCTC scholarship for half the tuition cost up to 6 credit hours per semester. Students are responsible for textbook and other materials that may be required by the instructor.
  • Courses taught in a secondary school by a secondary school employee--students enrolled in these Dual Credit courses pay only a $50.00 enrollment charge per semester.
