College Credit

    • Dual Credit  Earn high school and college credit for select courses taken at your high school.
    • Early Admissions at COD  If you are interested in taking college-level classes and you are neither 18 years of age or older nor a high school graduate, you are considered an Early Admissions student.


  • Student Leadership Academy: Focuses on college and career readiness skills.
  • Non-Traditional Careers: Non-Traditional Careers help both men and women explore careers that are challenging, creative and satisfying but that may not be the typical choice.
  • Career Exploration: COD hosts several career exploration days on campus based off these career clusters. Ask your high school counselor how you can participate.
