Dual Credit

What is Dual Credit?
A dual credit course is a college course that a student may take to earn both college hours and high school credit. Students must complete the TSI, a TSI equivalent, or be exempt from TSI based on TAKS, SAT, or ACT scores.
These courses may be signed up for through the counseling office. Fees for textbooks and tuition do apply but vary for each institution.

For Dual Credit Courses offered on local college campuses: Contact your local high school counselor. Questions about dual credit may be directed toward any high school counselor (281) 482-3413.
