Dual Credit

  • WHAT IS DUAL CREDIT?

    Dual Credit means that you receive credit for a course on both a high school transcript and a college transcript. Students who successfully complete dual credit courses will have college credit hours that can be used as part of their degree in a two or four year University.

     Dual Enrollment via Texas OnRamps begins in the spring semester of the course. Students must sign up for the course in their course selections and designate the dual enrollment option.  Students' eligibility is determined by the college instructor based on fall-semester performance as you mention, but if a student is ineligible, they have a chance to regain eligibility by submitting a qualifying test score. TSI works, and so do SAT and ACT. Scores from previous years are acceptable. Submission is January/February - These are the scores that will fix ineligibility: 

    -SAT math score of at least 530 (11th graders may not use the school day SAT scores because the test will be taken past the submission deadline)
    -ACT combined score of 23 with at least 19 in math
    -TSI math score of at least 350
