Dual Degree Program with McHenry County College
The Dual Degree Program is an early college program that was 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 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.
A Dual Degree informational night will be held for students and parents at 7:00 p.m. on Oct. 10 at both Woodstock and Woodstock North high schools.
Student Application Process
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 course work, students will need to take placement tests in English and math. Due to the nature of those placement tests, students need to be enrolled in Geometry or Algebra II 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.
Application process: Please be sure to fill out all of the following forms. If all forms are not completed, the application will be considered incomplete. The application window will be open from October 15 to October 31.
