Dual Credit

DualCredit Brochure Cover


Life doesn’t have to be linear. Dual credit is a great way for you to get ahead on your college education. This program allows qualified high school juniors and seniors to earn college credit while still attending high school. Dual credit offers you courses that can lead to a certificate or associates degree that will give you a head start on a technical job.


At a fraction of the cost of classes offered at a four-year institution, you can start on your college education while still in high school. A typical Dual credit course runs $60 ($20 per credit hour), while the same class at another college or university may run upwards of $200. With the rising issue of student loan debt, these college courses truly pay for themselves in both time and money.


Classes can be face-to-face or delivered online, depending on your chosen program. Pick a pathway that works for you.

For Parents

As a parent, you know how hard it is to find a job in today's global economy. If you could go back in time, how valuable would it have been for you to get a jumpstart on college while still in high school? How much time and money would you have saved? How much would your life have changed? Dual credit saves time, money, and gives your child a much-needed leg up in today's workforce--a trifecta of advantages that lead to better opportunities.

Credits earned through the Dual credit program may or may not be transferrable to another college. It is up to the specific college to determine whether they will accept transfer credits from another college or institution.

Current school districts participating in the TSTC West Texas Dual Credit program include: Abilene ISD, Bangs, Blanket, Breckenridge, Brownwood, Cherokee, Colorado City, Early, Eastland, Gorman, Graford, Graham, Haskell, Hawley, Jim Ned, Loraine, May, Mullin, Northside, Reagan County, Roscoe, Sweetwater and Victory Life Academy.

To begin your journey, complete these two forms (Authorization to Release Grades and Admissions) and contact Rene Ralston, Coordinator of Dual credit via email at rene.ralston@tstc.edu or at 325.235.7412 today!
