A university and a career technical education (CTE) center joined forces to offer dual credit courses. Two institutions worked together to create and implement five different dual credit courses in the areas of physics and mathematics. This paper presents two major findings. First, results of the student's evaluations of their dual credit experience at a CTE center are presented and discussed. Sixty-four students in the program were telephone interviewed and two different groups of students participated in focus groups. Second, the development and implementation of the program is described. Emphasis is placed on relationships, course identification, mentoring, rigor, assessment, authenticity and providing a showcase for the work. This paper provides evidence that successful dual credit programs at CTE centers can be implemented with a university partner in a very short period of time and provides guidelines for those wishing to do the same.
