Dual Credit classes are classes a student takes and receives both high school credit and credit from Dallas College. Whether those credits will transfer to the school a student attends after graduation is up to the school that student attends, but it is Texas state law that all public universities in Texas must allow those credits to transfer, leaving it up to the receiving institution what credit they award. To see what credit a Texas university will award goes to www.tccns.org to determine what credit a course taken at Dallas College will receive at a different Texas public university. All Dual Credit classes are level 3 classes for grade point average (same as Honors classes). While tuition is waived for the Dual Credit Courses listed in the New Tech. High Course Planning Guide, books and other required materials are the learner's responsibility.
