    This page will provide a clear set of steps for all students planning to take Dual Credit courses at HHS for the Summer 2024, Fall 2024, and Spring 2025 terms. The following link can also provide a helpful checklist (Collin College New Student Checklist) but the steps below are specific to HHS. If you have any questions or problems as you navigate this process, please contact Mrs. Camarena, College & Career Counselor at HHS, via email (mcamarena@collin.edu).


     1: Request Dual Credit Courses in Skyward During the Course Selection Window

    All students intending to take Dual Credit during the 2024-2025 school year should request those specific Dual Credit classes in Skyward when the course selection window opens on January 24th. Students can find the course codes on their respective grade-level core course cards.

     2: Attend or Watch the Dual Credit Presentation

    All students considering Dual Credit for Summer 2024, Fall 2024, and/or Spring 2025 must watch this presentation.

    3: Decide if you want to take Dual Credit classes

    If you intend to take Dual Credit classes during the Fall 2024 and/or Spring 2025 terms, you should have entered those specific course requests into Skyward between January 24-28, 2024 or adjusted your requests to include Dual Credit classes during your individual course selection meeting with your school counselor.

    4: Apply to Collin College

    If you did not take Dual Credit during the Fall 2023 or Spring 2024 terms, you must complete and/or re-apply to Collin College using the following web site: ApplyTexas.org

    If you earned credit in a Dual Credit class during the Fall 2023 or Spring 2024 term, you may move on to Step 5 on this web page without completing a new Collin College application.

    Please note that students will not be able to take Dual Credit classes during the Fall 2024 or Spring 2025 terms without completing the necessary application, registration and payment steps through Collin College.

    Students are strongly encouraged to complete their application to Collin College as early as possible as Collin College may take up to 2 weeks to process an application.

    The following guide will help you complete the Apply Texas application. Please refer to it as needed.

    5:  Complete the Dual Credit Permission Form via Google

    If you plan to take a Dual Credit class during the Summer 2024, Fall 2024 and/or Spring 2025 term, please complete the following Dual Credit Permission Form via Google after you have applied to Collin College and received your 9-digit CWID. You must have your CWID to complete this form. If you do not submit this Google form, you will not be able to register for Dual Credit courses. This form will be due ASAP after the February 28, 2024 Dual Credit Information Session and no later than 11:55pm on Thursday, March 21, 2024. It is in your best interest to complete this form as soon as you can, as this form will allow you to move forward with registration and payment.

    Please note that although this form is only required to be completed once per year, students still must pay for courses each semester.

    Please note that this must be filled out by the HHS student from their LISD Google account.

    6: Clear remaining holds in Collin College Web account

    Within 3-5 business days of submitting your Collin College application, you should get an email (to the email address you provided in your Collin College application) from “Admissions” giving you access to your Collin College account. You should check the “holds” or items in your account that are preventing you from being able to pay for courses. If you have holds, please use the guide below for instructions on how to clear common holds. A student cannot pay for courses until all holds are removed from their account. If you have any additional questions about clearing holds, please contact the HHS College and Career Counselor, Mrs. Camarena at mcamarena@collin.edu

    The most important hold to clear is the mandatory campus safety hold. This hold requires a student to review a brief video and a short quiz.

    7:  Pay for Dual Credit courses through Collin College web account

    Once all holds are removed and students are registered in their Dual Credit classes, they must pay for Summer 2024 and/or Fall 2024 Dual Credit courses by April 30, 2024.

    Students who do not complete payment by April 30, 2024 will not be able to take Dual Credit courses during the Summer 2024 and/or Fall 2024 term. Furthermore, your HHS School Counselor will change your Skyward course requests from Dual Credit courses to HHS courses for those respective subjects.

    Payment plans may be established with Collin College if necessary. Students who receive Free/Reduced lunch will have their tuition waived by Collin College. Students must pay for classes for each academic term.
