Duel Enrollment/Industry Based Certification

Dual Enrollment allows high school students to take college courses and earn college and high school credit in a technical program. 

  1. College courses are available at some high school campuses through a credentialed instructor, on-site at a Texas State Technical College (TSTC) campus, or through a Distance Learning class taught by a TSTC instructor. 
  2. When a student completes their TSTC pathway while in high school, they can shorten the time it takes to earn a Certificate I, Certificate II or Associate of Applied Science degree in a technical program. 
  3. Dual Enrollment offers students a head start by earning college credit before they graduate from high school!
  1. Only students from school districts with whom TSTC has an agreement are eligible to participate. 
  2. Courses taken by high school students must be approved by the school district. 
  3. High school Dual Enrollment students are considered college students. 
  4. It is important for the student to be committed to the course work and the program they have chosen, as grades will be recorded on a permanent college transcript, which will affect future college/university admissions, scholarships, financial aid, etc.
