    The Dual Degree Program is an early college program created through a collaborative partnership between McHenry County College (MCC) and Woodstock Community Unit School District 200.  The program provides academically motivated students enrolled in District 200 an opportunity to earn a high school diploma and an Associate of Arts degree simultaneously. During their four years of school, students will take a combination of Dual Credit courses offered through District 200 at each high school and MCC courses offered at the McHenry County College campus.

    Students apply and are selected for this program during the 1st semester of 9th grade.

    How do I pay my Dual Degree fees? 

    • D200 will bill your family for 1/3 of the tuition fee for each MCC class (do NOT pay MCC directly).
    • District 200 will not bill you until after we get billed from MCC, so usually at the end of the course.

    What are the requirements for an Associate degree? Here is a link for the Associate of Arts  and the Associate of Science degree. 

    How do I find my individual 4-Year Plan? You can reference your Plan of Study and MCC Credit Evaluation (search for Plan of Study in your Google Drive) as well as MCC's AP Credit Policy and the D200 Curriculum Guide to see how D200's Dual Credit classes match with MCC classes (see pages 7 & 8).

    How do I send my AP test scores to MCC so I make sure I get credit for those exams? Go into your AP Classroom and select MCC for your free AP score submission. This can be updated until June 20, 2024.

Dual Degree Program Orientation

Student Application Process 2023 (Class of 2027)

  • The ideal candidate for the Dual Degree Program is a student who has consistently demonstrated a strong commitment to their academics. In order to qualify for some of the coursework, students will need to take placement tests in English and math. Due to the nature of those placement tests, it is recommended that students be enrolled in Geometry, or show a strong proficiency in Algebra I, during their Freshman year. If you have questions about whether or not this is a good fit, students and families are encouraged to meet with their high school counselor. To hear directly from our students about their experience in the Dual Degree Program, please click here.
