Eligibility

The Texas Administrative Code has developed the Dual Credit program for high school juniors and seniors.  Exceptions may be made for 10th grade students who have demonstrated outstanding academic performance and capability (as evidenced by grade-point average and assessment indicators). In accordance with Alamo Colleges policy, all students taking courses on the college campus must be 16 years of age by the start of the academic year in which they enroll. This includes internet based courses.  

10th Grade 

Student consideration is based upon submission of a complete application packet, qualifying test scores, and approval from both the High School Principal and the College's VP of Academic Affairs. Sophomore students are allowed to take one dual credit class in each fall and spring semester, from the available courses list.   

11th and 12th Grade 

Student consideration is also based upon submission of a complete application packet, qualifying test scores, and must be listed on the High School's Recommendation List. They can take a maximum of two dual credit courses during each fall and spring semester, from the available courses list. 

 

Placement by Subject Chart - Coming Soon!

This chart is a breakdown of placement standards per subject and will only list the test instruments acceptable through the Texas Success Initiative (TSI). The standards currently listed have been approved but are subject to change per THECB or Alamo Colleges policy updates. Please keep in mind that this chart will indicate all possible subjects taken through dual credit, even if they are not offered on your high school campus. 

NOTE: Beginning with the college's first class day of Academic Year (fall 2013), the new TSI Assessment and Placement Standards will be in effect. For more information please visit our Testing Center website at http://www.alamo.edu/nvc/admissions/testing/tsi.htm.
