Dual Credit courses allow students to earn college credit while attending high school, beginning as early as their junior year.
Taught by fully credentialed adjunct and full-time TCC faculty, Dual Credit courses satisfy high school graduation requirements and provide college credit at the same time.
Courses identified as college-level academic courses by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) are eligible for Dual Credit coursework. Also, designated college-level technical education courses may be taken for dual credit. Specific course offerings are determined through written agreement between the ISD and TCC.
