Home School Dual Credit FAQs

Homeschool students must contact the Educational Partnerships Office to schedule an appointment.. During this appointment, the enrollment and contract/agreement process will be reviewed.

Dual credit students can take almost any modaility of class offered at Dallas College. While online classes are available, we highly advise students to attend face-to-face classes so they can have a well-rounded college experience.

After a student has demonstrated successful academic progression in a face-to-face course, enrollment in online classes can be discussed.

Transcripts are needed to verify what a student has completed. Transcripts are required each academic year a homeschool student completes coursework.

To align with other Dallas College procedures, transcripts need to be submitted annually. Transcript must include:

  • Student’s full name
  • Date of birth
  • Last 4 of SSN
  • Name of homeschool
  • Parent’s or homeschool counselor’s full name
  • Class names, credits earned, final grade
  • Current GPA
  • Pending date of graduation
  • Seal of notary public

A transcript template can be provided if the student does not have a homeschool transcript.

The graduation requirements for Texas can be located on the Texas Education Agency (TEA) website.

Appointments are required to sign contracts and register for classes for the first time.

For subsequent semesters, contact the campus Educational Partnerships office for the registration process.

Homeschool students have access to tutoring services, computer labs, library, and student clubs and activities that are available to all students. ​
