Registration for dual credit and early college high school courses occurs on each high school campus or the college campus. School officials may collaborate with college personnel on best practices for recruitment and informational activities for each high school campus.
Dallas County Community College District will establish and follow appropriate registration timelines, policy and procedures to meet the needs of all students interested in dual credit courses.
Check with our calendar for all registration dates.
The dual credit and early college high school programs are designed for high school students who have the ability, motivation and maturity to begin their college educations before high school graduation. Below are the admission standards students must meet to become a part of the dual credit and concurrent enrollment program:
For registration dates, please see the dual credit and early college high school program calendar.
Students participating in the dual credit and early college high school program for the first time are considered "new" students and are required to complete an online application and dual credit application packet before registration. Once complete, the student must submit their high school enrollment form after being reviewed by their high school coordinator to ensure the student meets the eligibility policy for the program.
For instructions on how to enroll as new students, please see the new student application page.
Students who have completed one or more semesters in the dual credit and early college high school program program are considered "returning" students and can register and provide only a high school enrollment form and high school transcript.
For instructions on how to register as new students, please see the returning students registration page.
After completing all necessary documents, home-schooled students will need to work with a dual credit and early college high school academic advisor to develop a plan that will best meet the needs of each student. During your meeting, you will have the opportunity to discuss coursework and your graduation plan. Please bring a transcript each semester to meet with your advisor.
