HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT
Students enrolling in a college-level course at Delta will receive 1.0 high school credits for each 5-credit college course (as opposed to 0.5 credits for other courses).  There is no fee to enroll in the course for high school credit.  Fees only apply if choosing to take the course for both high school and college credit. 

COLLEGE CREDIT
When a student decides to take a course for college credit this automatically starts an official college transcript with CWU which will include the student's performance in the class.  College credit earned may count as elective or academic credit depending on the receiving college's transfer credit policies. 

Delta High School and our three partner school districts have a long-standing relationship with Central Washington University, and a tuition agreement allows us to offer CWU courses at Delta at the significantly reduced cost of $35/credit hour.  Costs per course are shown below:
