Dual Credit

What is dual credit?

Dual credit is a process by which an eligible high school junior or senior enrolls in a college course and receives simultaneous academic credit for the course from both the college and the high school. While dual credit courses are often taught on the secondary school campus to high school students only, a high school student can also take a course on the college campus and receive both high school and college credit. These courses are stepping stones from high school to college, serving as a path to academic degree programs.

Am I Eligible?

If you are a junior or senior in high school and are college ready, you may qualify for this outstanding opportunity.  Please see Student Eligibility for detailed information on college readiness and other requirements.

NOTE: High school freshmen and sophomores may also participate in dual credit programs, but must meet the same eligibility requirements in place for juniors and seniors with regards to college readiness and further demonstrate outstanding academic performance and capability (as evidenced by GPA, PSAT/NMSQT scores, PLAN or other assessment indicators).  Participation by freshmen and sophomores must be approved by both the principal of the high school and the Provost of Sul Ross State University.
