Dual Enrollment

Academies can request that NAF approve dual enrollment courses to count toward NAFTrack certification. Dual enrollment and early college courses may be offered directly by the college and its faculty or by high school teachers approved by the college. NAF approves up to six college credits in career-related courses toward NAFTrack. The sponsoring college or university must be accredited. 

Dual enrollment courses must provide content directly connected to the career theme and involve applied career skills or content. Basic skills courses, remedial courses, courses relating to a particular software suite, and those that fulfill common general education requirements, while helpful to students in their college and career preparation, do not meet this test. 

Some commonly requested courses that do not meet the requirements for NAFTrack Certification include statistics, communication, biology, Microsoft Office, computer literacy, and composition courses.

Advance notice of the offered courses is required so NAF can determine if they are career oriented. Basic skills or general education courses will not be approved. Approval may take up to 14 days.

Once a course at a specific institution has been approved, students from any academy who take the same dual enrollment or early college course from that college or university may request credit for that course. See a full listing of currently approved courses in the “ACCESS RESOURCES” section of NAFTrack Certification.
