The Texas Administrative Code has developed the Dual Credit program for high school juniors and seniors. Exceptions may be made for 10th grade students who have demonstrated outstanding academic performance and capability (as evidenced by grade-point average and assessment indicators). In accordance with Alamo Colleges policy, all students taking courses on the college campus must be 16 years of age by the start of the academic year in which they enroll. This includes internet based courses.
Student consideration is based upon submission of a complete application packet, qualifying test scores, and approval from both the High School Principal and the College's VP of Academic Affairs. They are allowed to take one dual credit class in each fall semester and spring semester, from the list of courses below. (Students will be charged $80.00 per credit hour for classes that are not dual credit sectioned and offered with regular college students. All methods apply; face to face, internet and distance.)
