Advanced Credit for First-Year Students
Shenandoah University accepts several options that provide for credit toward a degree for incoming First-Year students. Such credits are treated as transfer work. No grades are awarded for advanced credit.
College courses taken by high school students while they are still enrolled in high school are considered dual-enrollment coursework. Dual enrollment coursework will likely transfer to Shenandoah University.
