Starting College Early with Dual Credit

Many upperclassmen are already beginning their college careers by enrolling in dual credit classes.

“To get into dual credit courses, you have to apply for the Texas Application,” college and career counselor Larissa Duke said.

Before starting dual credit, students must have a bacterial meningitis vaccination and know what they would like to study. Once students decide on an area of study, they can start dual credit courses as early as their sophomore year.

“Starting dual credit courses early in high school reduces the cost of the classes students are taking,” Duke said. “One course is $99, compared to one course in college being over $1000.”

Dual credit coordinators Mrs. Duke and Mrs. Dragoo have also scheduled several visits from college representatives to speak to CHS students about future schooling options.

“Before you graduate [from high school], students should research a degree plan if they have more than one school option,” Duke said.
