Beginning in the summer after the student’s sophomore year, qualified high school students may enroll in accredited Dual Credit courses with the exception of Medical Terminology available starting in 10th grade. Students enrolled in Dual Credit courses receive both high school credit and college credit simultaneously. Grades earned in Dual Credit courses taken during the fall and spring semester are weighted, calculated into the student’s high school GPA, and appear on the student’s high school and college transcript. To be eligible to enroll in Dual Credit courses, students must meet college admission requirements. Additionally, students must complete the application and registration process, including taking the TSI, and provide a copy of the college transcript or grade report at the end of the semester. Dual Credit courses taken during summer school or on-line will not be calculated into the student’s high school GPA but will appear on the high school and college transcript.
Students will be responsible for paying all tuition, books, and fees associated with Collin College Dual Credit courses.
