Strengthening Dual Credit in Texas

The UT System is working to ensure that Texas is able to provide high-quality dual credit experiences equitably across the state, supported by good data, policy and practice, and to understand the impact of dual credit programs on our students.

The rapid expansion of dual credit or concurrent enrollment programs in Texas in recent years is sending more students to the state's post-secondary institutions with college credits earned in high school. In removing traditional barriers between high school and college, dual credit represents key points along the student success continuum and works to improve access, affordability, and completion for students across the state.
