Dual Credit Courses


What Courses Are Offered?


Dual/Concurrent Credit courses are offered in a variety of subject areas...


ACADEMIC courses will serve to complete college course requirements typically associated with freshman and sophomore level courses necessary for a Texas Associate's Degree that can be applied to a bachelor's degree at any Texas Four-year University.

(Examples: English, Government, History, Biology, Math, Psychology, Art)


TECHNICAL courses will serve to complete career and technical educational programs are related to various high-demand occupations which require one to two years of training and will allow students to go to work immediately after their training is completed. Even more importantly, most of these career and technical programs are designed to allow students to move into a career pathway. Many of our programs have articulation agreements in order for the Technical degrees to lead to a BAAS.

(Examples: Accounting, Auto Collision, Computer Maintenance, Child Development, Cosmetology, Criminal Justice, Drafting, Welding )
