    Common questions concerning Dual Credit:

    • How does dual credit affect my class choices?  Students are given the opportunity to choose classes in a number of combinations.  Dual credit courses can be combined with regular classes and AP classes. Your academic counselor can help you decide what will work well for you.
    • How do you receive credit for dual credit classes?  Dual credit courses require that students pass the class (with a grade of 70 or higher) and take the required final exam.
    • Will all colleges accept DC credits?  Not all colleges and universities will accept dual credit. Most public Texas colleges accept DC credits. If not sure, contact the college/university.
    • How do DC classes affect a student’s GPA?  See the table below.
