Veritas Scholars Academy has partnered with Cairn University to offer dual enrollment credits to full-time (diploma) and part-time students. After successful completion of the course the student will receive credit from both VSA and Cairn University. There are no additional outside requirements for Veritas students to receive dual credits.
**Omnibus Primary and Secondary courses must be taken in the same academic year in order to receive Dual Enrollment credit.
*Course names are Veritas Scholars Academy’s. Course numbers after the names are Cairn’s codes.
Dual Enrollment (DE) occurs when a VSA student is enrolled in a VSA Live course that is recognized by Cairn University (www.Cairn.edu) as eligible for dual enrollment status and applies for this status. After successful completion of the course with a passing grade, the student will receive credit from both VSA and Cairn University.
Students who complete a DE course with a grade of 70% or above will receive an official transcript from Cairn University documenting college course credit.
Classes are a full academic year at VSA and registered as a Spring semester course at Cairn University. If needed for college applications, Cairn can provide an Enrollment Verification Letter at a student’s written request. These are available at the end of November of the academic year in which the student is enrolled in the course.
Cairn University will provide an academic transcript for DE courses. Transcript requests can be made by visiting Cairn’s Transcript Portal. VSA provides course grades to Cairn University in June.
Students must complete the Dual Enrollment Request form and submit payment by May 30 for Summer courses and no later than October 30 for Sept-May courses.

DE courses may be taken by VSA students in their junior and/or senior years. Only full-time sophomore students may be approved on a case by case basis. Part-time students must substantiate their date of birth to ensure their being in their junior or senior year as a homeschooled student. Dual enrollment credit will not be given for courses completed in prior years.
