What are dual credit courses?
- Dual credit courses may be taught at a College site, on the high school campus, online, via interactive television 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 the Dual Credit Pathways Advisor at Midland College to ensure that 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.

Note to all dual credit students
- Each semester, students must register, through MC, for dual credit courses. There is a difference in being in a high school class and registering for the dual credit portion of the class.
- This is a college course and students will be generating college grades on a college transcript. These grades will follow you to other schools and jobs.
- If you choose not to continue in the dual credit class, you must make sure to drop (withdraw) from the College as well as the high school.
LHS & MHS ONLY
Most dual credit students will pay at least a portion of their tuition and fees. Failure to make the required payment will result in being dropped from the college course.
There are a few dual credit programs that do not require student payment. These are small in number and students should check with their high school counselor and Midland College to confirm. Please assume that you will need to pay at least a portion of your tuition and fees until you receive confirmation that your balance is zero.
