Dual Credit

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​The Dual Credit program at Dallas College offers qualified high school students an opportunity to earn college credit while completing high school requirements.

Many Dallas County public and private high schools​ have agreements with Dallas College that provide scholarships to cover the cost of tuition for Dual Credit students.


What Are Dual Credit Courses?


Multiple Classes Offered 

Dual Credit courses are offered in several subject areas including math, science, English, economics, history, government and a wide variety of technical courses.


Learn From Quality Instructors​

Dual Credit courses are taught either at the college or at the high school by college faculty, or qualified high school instructors who meet the same criteria as college faculty.


College-Level Learning

Students should expect the same level of course rigor and expectations that are placed on undergraduate students enrolled in the same course at Dallas College.


Transferring Made Easy​

Dual Credit academic courses are transferable to all Texas public colleges and universities and to some private and out-of-state institutions.


If you are interested in a Dual Credit course, check with your high school counselor for a complete list of available courses.
