What is Dual Credit?
The dual credit program allows high school students the opportunity to enroll in college courses while still in high school provided they have:
- Achieved the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board testing standard on STARR EOC, PLAN, PSAT, ACT, SAT, or TSI;
- Been granted permission from the high school principal or counselor; and
- Been evaluated by the Director of Enrollment Management for admission based on demonstrated ability for the courses in which they seek enrollment.
Certain courses are approved through dual credit partnerships between the college and local independent school districts for dual high school and college credit. Dual credit students enroll in college courses while in high school and earn college credit that the high school will convert to high school credit for graduation purposes.
To be admitted, dual credit students must demonstrate college-level proficiency through a standardized test noted above and provide the Office of Educational Services with written approval of the high school principal or counselor, an official high school transcript, and state-mandated test scores or proof of exemption.
HB 505, effective immediately, states the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board may not limit: 1) The number of dual credit courses or hours in which a student may enroll while in high school; 2) The number of dual credit courses or hours in which a student may enroll each semester or academic year; or 3) The grade levels at which a high school student may be eligible to enroll in a dual credit course.
Dual credit students must adhere to all college policies and procedures set forth in the Student Handbook, including email, CAMS, rules of plagiarism, concerns and complaints, grade appeals, and disciplinary action and appeals.
