Dual Credit High School Partnership Programs

Treasure Valley Community College (TVCC) provides numerous opportunities for area high school students to earn college credits while still in high school. Please review the following programs to find out how you can get a jump start on your college career at a reduced tuition cost.


The COL-CRED program at TVCC is a collaborative educational venture in partnership with area high schools. It is a unique opportunity for high achieving students to earn both High School and College credits while in high school. Classes are taught on the high school campus by qualified high school instructors. The registration process is facilitated through the high school teacher and high school students can sign up for as many Col-Cred classes as are offered at each individual high school.

COL-CRED classes are usually those that meet general education requirements for Oregon and Idaho universities. They are introductory in nature and meet the basic core requirements offered during the college freshman year.

College Choice

TVCC offers local high school Juniors and Seniors the opportunity to enroll in one college course each quarter - without the expense of tuition. 

Students meeting the 3.0 GPA criteria for the program can register, on a space available basis, one week before each quarter. Both online and live classes are eligible for College Choice. Advisors in the Student Services Center can help students with class selections.

College Access

Local High Schools are given a number of "slots" for select TVCC online classes. College Access requires that students are a Junior or Senior and have a 3.0 or higher cumulative GPA.

Registration for College Access is administered through Malheur County ESD. For more information about this dual credit opportunity, please call (541) 473-3138, ext. 4855.


2+2 Tech Prep is a Dual Credit option for high school students who will be seeking a 2-year degree in a technical field and is designed to award college credit for skills attained while still in high school.  At TVCC, students can begin earning college credit through 2+2 programs as early as the freshman year at one of the partnering high schools. The 2+2 credits are Career & Technical (CTE) credits and are not designed to transfer to a four year university, however up to 12 credits can be used as electives toward a transfer degree (AAOT). For more information call (541) 881-5594, or check with your local high school counselor for further information about this program.
