Dual Credit Programs
Dual Credit allows students to earn both high school and college credit at the same time. Texas House Bill 505 (HB505) was put into effect to expand the opportunities students have to earn college credit while still enrolled in high school.
The state law, passed in 2015, places no limits on the number of college courses high school students can take for dual credit. Under the recent legislation, students are also able to participate in dual credit programs as early as their freshman year, rather than their junior year.
