Dual Credit Mission Statement
The mission of Dual Credit is to provide high school students a seamless pathway to post-secondary education, academic curriculum, and affordable career and technical education opportunities leading to college enrollment and future employment in high skill, high wage and high demand fields applicable to the student's success.
What is Dual Credit?
Dual credit is a process by which a high school student enrolls in a college course and receives simultaneous academic credit for the course from both the college and the high school. While dual credit courses are often taught on the secondary school campus to high school students only, a high school student can also take a course on the college campus and receive both high school and college credit.
Who is eligible to take Dual Credit courses?
Dual credit courses are for students in high school who demonstrate college readiness by achieving the minimum passing standards under the provisions of the state of Texas. Refer to the Dual Credit Assessment Testing Chart under Forms.
What courses are available?
Dual Credit courses include both academic courses as well as career/technical courses. These courses are stepping stones from high school to college, serving as a path to academic degree programs or college level workforce education courses. Check with your high school counselor for course listings. Grades received in dual credit courses are part of the student's permanent college record.
How much do Dual Credit courses cost?
For proposed tuition & fees check with your high school counselor and look for current tuition and fee amounts under Forms.
