New and Current Dual Credit Students

Y​ou are a college student now! Your college classes will be rigorous and fast-paced.

Dual Credit, ECHS, P-TECH and T-STEM students are required to follow all Dallas College policies and procedures with regard to conduct and academic standards and to abide by Dallas College student rights and responsibilities. As a college student, you are considered a responsible adult. Your enrollment indicates acceptance of the Code of Student Conduct. Some policies and procedures that may affect you are outlined below.

Required Attendance

You are required to follow the college's academic calendar, which may vary from that of your high school. Your college will treat you, as a Dual Credit student, the same as your college peers. All students should make the necessary time commitment required of their class.

Missing a college Dual Credit class to attend high school-related events, such as pep rallies and field trips, is not considered an excused absence. If you know you will be absent, please talk to your college professor about what to do.

Statement on Scholastic Dishonesty

Scholastic dishonesty is not allowed and may result in punishment. Scholastic dishonesty can include, but is not limited to, cheating on an exam or quiz, plagiarizing and unauthorized collaboration with another in preparing outside work. Academic work submitted by students shall be the result of their thought, work, research or self-expression. Academic work is defined as, but not limited to, tests or quizzes, whether taken electronically or on paper; projects, either individual or group; classroom presentations; and homework.
