Dual Credit and Concurrent Enrollment

Each year, SVA students successfully complete a range of courses at both CNM and UNM.  Dual Credit is a wonderful opportunity for motivated students to take college classes while still in high school.  Taking a college class is one of the best ways to learn about what it is really like to be a college student.  Why should you consider pursuing Dual Credit?  It is an opportunity that provides many benefits by allowing you to: 

  • Get a jump start on college
  • Save money! Dual credit classes are tuition free!
  • Prepare for certification in a variety of career fields
  • Complete Arts and Science courses for transfer to four year state institutions 
  • Enjoy smaller classes and personalized attention from faculty
  • Enrich your life by exploring programs not available at your high school
  • Meet new friends who share your interests 
  • Earn Elective Credits at the Same Time
  • For each 3-4 credit hour college course you will earn 1 high school elective credit
  • For every 1-2 credit hour college course you will earn .5 high school elective credits
  • If your high school schedule will allow it you can enroll in more than 1 class each term
