Dual Credit & Leap

High school students have the opportunity to earn college credit while in high school. Students who meet the requirements can take certain courses for both high school and college credit through Dakota College at Bottineau. We offer a variety of options for you to take dual credit courses; our courses are offered over Interactive Video Network (IVN or ITV) and online. In some schools, you can take courses at your own high school from one of your own teachers.

Designed for high schools, LEAP allows high school students to earn a college certificate alongside their high school diploma, saving students time and money. Students will earn 24 general education college credits while in high school, by taking two dual credit courses from DCB during each semester of their junior and senior year.
