Program – Allyn Decker and Sarah Langhorn were our speakers from Ivy Tech, Warsaw. Allyn and Sarah spoke about Dual Credit opportunities at Ivy Tech Warsaw. Dual Credit is the opportunity for high school students to earn college credit while still in high school. These courses are taken at the high school.
There is also an opportunity for students to have Dual Enrollment. Dual Enrollment means that the student is enrolled at Ivy Tech and the credit transfers back to the high school.
