The Dual Enrollment Computer Science Program at Truman State University puts you in the driver’s seat as you explore Introduction to Computer Science I (Truman’s CS 170). The course’s learning model helps you:
The first year of this program will begin in Fall 2018
The Dual Enrollment Computer Science program primarily serves high schools in Missouri looking for alternative approaches to traditional dual credit delivery systems. The DECS system is ideal for small schools, schools without a teacher qualified to teach dual credit under state rules, and schools wanting to improve the overall readiness of their students to advance directly into higher level computer science courses in college.
For the Fall 2018 year the number of participating schools will be limited as part of a special grant. This grant will support additional resources for the implementation of the program, including added support for participating schools.
