South Texas College Dual Credit Programs

The Dual Credit Programs at South Texas College provide the opportunity for eligible high school students, in a participating school district, to enroll in college courses while still attending high school.

High school students interested in participating in the program must meet the same requirements as all other college students within the guidelines established by The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board.

Eligible high school students are able to take courses in place of, or in addition to, the normal course load at their high school.

Dual Credit courses, offered at high school sites, are provided at no cost to students.
