Dual Credit

 

What is Dual Credit?

  • Dual credit courses enable students to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. The courses have been agreed upon between the school district and Midland College.
  • Courses may be taught at a MC site, on the high school campus, online, or through a combination of those methods.
  • Core and foreign language dual credit courses are transferable to Texas public colleges and universities and most private institutions. However, students are encouraged to work with Dual Credit Coordinators at Midland College to ensure their dual credit courses will count toward their future degree.
  • Career and technical dual credit courses allow students to earn college level certifications while in high school that can lead to immediate job opportunities. Students can also continue their training at Midland College upon high school graduation.
