Dual Credit provides students with some great opportunities and significant financial savings. Through the dual enrollment program, students can earn both high school and college credit simultaneously. Because Texas has a common course numbering system, credit is easily transferred between community colleges like CTC and upper-level or four-year public institutions.
Dual Credit offers the following benefits:
· Expands academic options for college-bound high school students;
· Minimizes the duplication of courses taken in high school and college;
· Shortens the time required to complete an undergraduate degree; and
· Significantly reduces the cost of higher education.
Dual credit information for high school counselors can be found here.
