Dual Credit for Homeschool Students

Northwest Vista College offers traditional dual credit to eligible homeschool students in our service area.  The Core Curriculum Selection List can be used as a guide for the potential courses students can take.  Final course eligibility will depend on student's transcript and test scores.

Before applying, please contact the NVC Dual Credit Department for detailed program information.

  • Returning students: There is a possibility you may need to re-apply and/or take the TSI Assessment for the 2020-2021 program, if you did not register for and/or dropped courses during the previous semester.
    The dual credit department can assist you with determining the need to re-apply and/or re-test.
