The Dual Credit program
at North Central Texas College (NCTC) provides an opportunity for eligible high school juniors and seniors to enroll in college level courses AND earn both college credit and high school credit simultaneously by taking college classes at the NCTC campus. These classes are also available online.
Meeting with your counselor is the first step for students wishing to enroll in Dual Credit courses. To be eligible for Dual Credit classes, students must pass the TSI assessment or be exempt from it and complete all registration steps.
Reference the attachments below for the complete Step by Step guide for applying for Dual Credit courses.
