About Dual Credit

Dual Credit enables a high school student to earn credit towards high school graduation while simultaneously earning college credit towards an associate's degree or workforce program certificate.

Dual Credit is approved and regulated by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

Dual Credit classes are college level classes, taught by college faculty, using the same curricula, materials, and rigor as classes taught on a regular college campus.
