Dual Credit at Collin College


Participating Schools

Collin College Dual Credit Students

Dual Credit

The Dual/Concurrent Credit Enrollment program at Collin College is a cooperative partnership between school districts and Collin College enabling high school students to earn college credits while completing the requirements for high school graduation.


High school students can take Collin College courses and simultaneously earn credit for both their high school diploma and their college degree. Courses may be taught on the high school or college campus by Collin College professors.

The process by which an eligible high school student enrolls in college-level academic or technical courses, while still enrolled in high school, and receives college credit without receiving high school credit for these courses. High School/Home School Official approval is required for both dual credit and concurrent credit. Students are responsible for determining whether their transfer institution will accept credit from Collin College. For detailed transfer information, please visit TransferU at

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.

Thousands of students are already on their journey to a better brighter future, pursuing coursework in Collin College Core Curriculum  or enrolling in Career & Technical courses while still in high school.

Please see our Dual Credit PowerPoint or Home School Dual Credit PowerPoint for more information on our program.
