Dual Degree Program with McHenry County College

  •  D200 Dual Degree Program logo





    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.  To learn more about this fantastic opportunity, please check back in the fall of 2023.  

Summer Course Information

  • Dear Dual Degree Students and Parents:


    Since many of you will be taking a class through McHenry County College (MCC) this summer, I wanted to remind you of a few things that will help you have a smooth start.

    Your first step is to go to the MCC website mchenry.edu then to MyMCC at the top.

    To find information on your class - click on Class Schedule.

    To access a "Flexible Online" course, click on MCC's Canvas Online Learning (note this is NOT your D200 Canvas course - you need to access Canvas through your MCC portal).

    Your MCC email is YourUsername@students.mchenry.edu. Hopefully, you remember your MCC username and password.

    If you are struggling to login, please call the MCC IT Help Desk at (815) 445-8457 at least one day before your class begins.

    You will not receive additional information before the start of the course.  If you have questions, please contact your MCC instructor, which can be found in Class Schedule.

    Let me know if you have any questions or concerns.



    Shannon Landwehr


    PS - You will be hearing more from me in the months to come since the Student Services Team has been restructured a bit, and I will now be the School Counselor for all Dual Degree students at both WHS and WNHS.  I look forward to getting to know all of you!
