Still in high school? Dallas College offers a number of programs designed to help high school students get on the fast track to a college education. Explore these programs to find one that fits your goals and interests.

In partnership with local high schools, Dallas College is able to offer college courses, taught by approved adjunct instructors to qualified high school students for college credit. Students are able to earn credit for both the high school class as well as earning college credit at the same time, hence the term dual credit. These college credits from Dallas College are transferable, costs less than regular undergraduate tuition and prepares students for the anticipated rigor of higher education.

All students enrolled in a dual credit and early college high school dual credit course, regardless of their choice to register for college credit or take it for high school credit only, should expect the course rigor and student expectations to compare to the rigor and expectations placed on university-level undergraduate students enrolled in the same on-campus course at Dallas College.
