How to Transfer your Dual Credits to Your College:If you have taken any Dual Credit classes in high school (through RB or the CACC), you must request to have your transcript from the college issuing the dual credit sent to the school you will be attending in the fall. Ex: If you took Dual Credit College Algebra, you need to contact UMKC and have your UMKC transcript with the College Algebra credit on it sent to the college you will be going to in the fall.
Visit this webpage for transcript request links to most Dual Credit colleges: https://career-center.org/college-credit/. Check with the RB or CACC teacher if unsure which college issues the credit.
