Dual Credit

Dual credit courses are courses offered to high school students through an official agreement between Dallas County Community Colleges and MISD. These specific, pre-approved courses meet both district and college guidelines in order to provide credit both in high school and college. No grade points were awarded for courses not taught on the high school campus during the regular school day and specific procedures must be followed. Check the MISD website for the specific courses and procedures.

Tech Prep Articulated Courses

Students may earn college credit through the Tech Prep articulated course program under an agreement with the Dallas County Community College District. Information is contained in the High School Course Description describing the Tech Prep courses and how college credit can be earned after high school graduation. The Career and Technical Education counselor at the high school campus will also have information. Students should check with their registrar about specific courses and requirements.

For more information about college credit information, contact the high school counselor or registrar at your campus.

MISD Dual Credit Courses with Dallas County Community College District (2019-2020)

This list of courses applies to the designated school years only, and it may change according to written agreement between MISD and DCCCD. No grade points are awarded for dual credit courses taken outside the regular school day or during summer at the college campus. The tuition-free courses are only available to students who complete all Dallas County Community College registration and enrollment procedures including testing. If a student must repeat a course to earn credit, there may be a tuition charge. Textbook costs must be paid by the student if the course is taken on the college campus.

To obtain one high school credit for a year-long high school course, both college semester courses must be taken and passed each semester. The student must provide official documentation from the college campus to the high school registrar each semester verifying the grade earned. High school credit may then be awarded and placed on the student’s high school transcript. To remain in the dual credit program and to earn high school credit for a course, a student must earn a college grade no lower than a “C” in the course. There are several courses that are available for dual credit and may be taken on the high school campus during the school day. Contact your dual credit counselor for a list of what is available on your campus.

**A student may earn a performance acknowledgement by successfully completing 12 hours of college academic courses with a grade of a “B” or highCourses listed as dual credit may not be available at the Eastfield campus each semester, but they may be taken at another DCCCD campus.  In these situations, the high school student must go through the Dual Credit Coordinator at the campus where the course is offered to complete enrollment. For enrollment applications, contact the Career and Technical Education counselor at each high school during the school year.  During the summer, contact the Dual Credit Coordinator at Eastfield College for applications. The MISD contact is Dr. Treva Franklin at 972-882-7377.
