Dual Enrollment

Welcome to ACC Dual Enrollment

The Dual Enrollment Program provides an opportunity for eligible high school students to enroll in college courses and receive both high school and college credit for the course. While dual enrollment courses are mostly taught on the high school campuses, students can also earn credit on the ACC college campus. To see more on ACC Dual Enrollment click here.

The value of taking Dual Enrollment courses

Save Time - students earn high school credit and college credit for the same course

Fullfill Requirements - satisfy requirements for the Texas high school graduation performance acknowledgments and begin or complete Texas College Core Curriculum requirements

Transferability - Academic Dual Enrollment courses will transfer with a grade C or higher to any Texas public colleges and universities

Save Money - Students that take Dual Enrollment courses on their high school campus save up to 75% in tuition

Dual Enrollment students need to:

  • be highly motivated
  • be able to stick to a goal
  • make above average grades
  • possess good study habits
  • understand that the amount of work necessary to succeed in college courses will be greater than that of high school courses
  • be aware that dual credit courses become a part of a student's permanent college transcript

Dual Degree Opportunity

To help students reach their educational goals in a timely manner, local ISD's and Alvin Community College offers qualified students the opportunity to earn a high school diploma and an Associates of Arts Degree in General Studies at the same time. The Dual Degree program is a rigorous program that will require extra time and dedication. Interested students should contact their high school counselor or ACC Advisor for more information and to develop a degree plan.
