What is Concurrent Credit?
Concurrent credit is when high school students earn college credit only for a college course.  High school/home school official approval is required for both dual and concurrent credit.

Who can participate?
You can participate if you are enrolled in a public high school, private, charter, or home school and are ready to acquire college credit. You must also have permission from the appropriate high school officials, an A/B grade point average, meet Texas Success Initiative (TSI) test standards, and demonstrate the maturity level needed to be successful in college course work.
