Dual Credit courses are taught on the high school campus by Tarrant County College instructors.  They provide an opportunity for high school students to take college-level courses that simultaneously award high school and college credit.  

Dual Credit Course Offerings were shared at the Mandatory Meetings (1/15/2020 & 2/3/2020).

Note: Dual courses must have a minimum number of student requests in order to offer them during the 2020-21 school year.

Please contact your school counselor for any questions.
