• ACSD / DMACC Shared Programming

    TO EARN DMACC CREDIT: The Iowa Department of Education has determined that a student must score in the proficient or above range on the Iowa Assessment to qualify for DMACC credit.

    Des Moines Area Community College and Ankeny Community School District are working together to provide a number of educational opportunities for ACSD students. “Shared Courses” are those for which students can earn DMACC credits while enrolling in the course at ACSD. “Shared Courses” include “concurrent enrollment courses” and courses that are “articulated” with DMACC.

    CONCURRENT CREDIT COURSES: Upon successful completion of their first “concurrent enrollment” offering, students will have begun building a college transcript. The grade for the course will be recorded on the student’s AHS or ACHS transcript as well as their DMACC transcript. Students will register for DMACC credit at the beginning of the semester in which the credit will be earned. “Concurrent enrollment” registration will be conducted by staff and will be done as part of the class. Please remember that concurrent credits are recorded on a college transcript as well as on the AHS/ACHS transcript. “Concurrent enrollment” courses will be recorded as weighted grades on the AHS/ACHS transcript. DMACC is the issuing agency for the college transcript and it is the responsibility of the student to make sure that the college transcript is accurate. In many cases, credits earned from “concurrent enrollment” courses will transfer to other colleges/universities. Each college/university establishes its own policy for acceptance of transfer credit. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the college of his/her choice to find out about their credit transfer policy.

    DMACC Career Academy Programs

    The DMACC Advantage Program includes several plans of study through which AHS/ACHS students can earn concurrent enrollment credits. While earning their high school diploma they can simultaneously earn college credits while completing requirements of specific DMACC programs. Students who are removed from DMACC Career Advantage classes will receive an F for the semester, and it will be recorded on the AHS/ACHS transcript. In many cases, credits earned from “concurrent enrollment” courses will transfer to other post-secondary institutions. Each college/university establishes its own policy for acceptance of transfer credit. It is the student’s responsibility to contact the college of his/her choice to find out about their credit transfer policy.

    You will find the DMACC Career Academy Programs listed under the correct grade they are available. They are subject to change. Please see your school counselor with questions.
