College Credit Opportunities

  • CORE 42

    Missouri Senate Bill 997 ensures that all general education courses are fully transferable to all public colleges and universities in Missouri. This statewide framework is called CORE 42, and all courses that are included in this framework are identified in the catalog and in the course schedule with a Missouri Transfer (MOTR) number. Students who complete all 42-credit hours will have CORE 42 noted on their transcript. CORE 42 provides a special reassurance that each course with a MOTR number taken at St. Louis Community College will transfer as the same course to any public college or university in the state.

    PLTW Engineering College Credit

    If a student completes any PLTW course with an 80 percent or better, along with a 75 percent or better on a college-level comprehensive exam at the end of the course, the student can earn three hours of college credit from many universities nationwide. Visit the Project Lead the Way website for details.

    If a student completes Introduction to Engineering Design and Principles of Engineering with an 80 percent or better, and receives a 70 percent or better on a comprehensive exam at the completion of the courses, the student can apply to receive three credit hours from Missouri University of Science and Technology for the school’s freshman-level Engineering course.

    PLTW Biomedical College Credit

    Upon completion of anyone of the Biomedical Courses, students who have received an A or B first and second semester, AND who have passed the EOC with a 6 or higher, can submit a form to the counseling office to be filled out and sent to Missouri S&T. Students receive Biology Elective credit.

    Personal Financial Management

    Students may receive dual credit through Missouri State University by successfully completing both Personal Financial Management and Missouri State’s Fin 150 iCourse program.

    Saint Louis University 1818

    Dual credit courses enable high school students to receive both high school and college-level credit simultaneously. Modern language level 4 and 5 courses at Lindbergh High School are offered through the 1818 Program at Saint Louis University. Students are responsible for paying the fee, per credit hour, set by the university.
