What is dual credit enrollment?
Dual credit classes are classes that give you college credit for the same class you might normally only take as an AP class or a high school elective. It allows you to receive both high school and college credit for the same class if registered through Hill College and formally approved by your high school.
Who is qualified to take concurrent enrollment classes?
Any student who is currently a sophomore, junior, or senior at an accredited high school and is in good academic standing is qualified to take concurrent credit classes.
What classes are offered for concurrent/dual credit?
- Classes that are taught at the high school are dependent upon who is qualified to teach them. Instructors must have a master's degree plus 18 graduate hours in the subject matter area in which they are teaching.
- Contact your high school counselor, vice principal, or principal for information about what concurrent credit classes are taught and which ones are available for you to take.
- Since most concurrent courses will be taught at the college campus/center, you may talk to someone in our Dual Credit/Concurrent Enrollment office about course selection. You can receive information in our Dual Credit/Concurrent Enrollment office about applying for college admission and registering for this course(s) following your receiving official permission from your school counselor, vice principal, or principal to take this course(s).
