After completing all necessary documents, home-schooled students will need to work with a Dual Credit academic advisor to develop a plan that will best meet your needs. During your meeting, you will have the opportunity to discuss coursework, your graduation plan, and a Home School Contract. Please bring a transcript each semester to meet with your advisor.
Out of County students do pay tuition for courses. No student will be registered for courses until a home school contract is completed.
Home School Dual Credit FAQs
Where do I start?
Homeschool students must contact the Educational Partnerships Office to schedule an appointment.. During this appointment, the enrollment and contract/agreement process will be reviewed.
Can I take online classes?
Dual credit students can take almost any modaility of class offered at Dallas College. While online classes are available, we highly advise students to attend face-to-face classes so they can have a well-rounded college experience.
