BASIC INFORMATION:
Partnerships between Texas secondary schools and Texas colleges and universities have enabled high school students to earn college credits before graduating from high school, making their transition to the collegiate campus smoother and their likelihood of graduating from college greater.  College courses offered for dual credit may be taught at the college campus, the high school campus, or online by credentialed instructors. Courses offered for dual credit include the same content and rigor as courses taught to other college students, utilizing the same instructors, curriculum and policies. Dual credit courses are free to students; however, students may be responsible for purchasing books for courses taken in the summer.  Also, students will have to pay for courses that need to be retaken due to a failing grade or withdrawal.  


WHO CAN APPLY AT DHS:
Students can start applying to take a dual credit course during the course scheduling period of their sophomore year (only 11th & 12th grade students can take dual credit courses).  Students can take up to two dual credit courses per semester (fall or spring).
