UMSL ACC Courses

These advanced college credit (ACC) courses are dual credit college courses. Chaminade students may choose to take the course for college credit or simply for credit toward high school graduation. Regardless of the choice the student makes, the course rigor and student expectations are designed as a college course, and compare to the rigor and expectations placed on students enrolled in the same course on the University of Missouri -St. Louis campus. These courses are taught in affiliation with universities in the St. Louis area.  Chaminade faculty are adjunct instructors who are highly trained and accountable to maintain university standards.  A student who earns an A, B or C in an ACC class is awarded that grade through the university.  Participating students create an official transcript of grade with the university along with a grade point average. Advanced college credit may be transferable to various universities. Students are highly advised to check with their College Counselor regarding the transferability of the credit

Chaminade students registering for ACC courses are rewarded with full access to university libraries at the time of their studies. 
Students may register for both fall and spring semester courses.  

In order to be eligible for dual credit courses,

a)    Students in the 11th and 12th grades must have an overall minimum grade point average of 80% are automatically eligible for dual credit courses.

b)    Students in the 11th and 12th grades with an overall grade point average between 75% - 80% must provide a signed letter of recommendation from their principal or guidance counselor and provide written permission from a parent or legal guardian.

c)    Students in the 10th grade must have an overall minimum grade point average of 80% and must provide a signed letter of recommendation from their principal and guidance counselor and provide written permission from a parent or legal guardian.
