What to Consider as a Dual Enrollment Student
  • Level of maturity, responsibility, and independence
  • Instructor will solely communicate class progress with students
  • Parents may communicate solely with high school dual enrollment instructors
  • Student must communicate with instructor when absent due to illness and/or extra-curricular activities

Dual Enrollment Grades

  • Grades will be posted directly to college transcript and will affect college GPA
  • Grades will also be posted on the high school transcript and will affect high school GPA for core area subjects
  • Off-Campus course grades are not calculated in high school GPA
  • Failing college grades will lead to ineligibility in extra-curricular activities

    Transfer of Credits
  • Consult with college advisors on how dual enrollment credits will transfer
  • Taking excess credits out of your declared degree plan may result in unnecessary fees and may affect financial aid eligibility

Dual Enrollment Course Fees

  • Student contribution is $50 for STC courses
  • Student contribution is $60 per credit hour for UTPA courses
  • Off-campus students will be responsible for the purchase of their own textbooks

Withdrawal Procedures

  • Students will still be responsible for course fees if dropping a college course after the 12th class day
  • Students will be responsible for filling out the"Drop/Withdrawal Form" by set deadline
  • Withdrawals and a low college GPA may affect financial aid, scholarship possibilities, and future employment opportunities
