What is the Dual Credit program? 

Palo Alto College’s Dual Credit Program allows eligible high schools students to earn college credit for certain high school courses in which they are currently enrolled while completing their high school requirements. In order for students to participate in the program, the high schools must be approved to offer dual credit courses.

  2. Complete the ApplyTexas application
  3. Complete the AlamoENROLL modules
  4. Coordinate with the high school counselor on testing requirements
  5. Turn in all necessary documentation to your high school counselor.

Students may take up to two dual credit classes (6 to 8 semester credit hours) per regular semester; Dual Credit courses are offered in the Fall and Spring semesters only. This includes students enrolled in a Texas High School, some private schools, and students who are home schooled. Course credit will be counted for both high school graduation credit and college credit.
