Dual Credit

UIL and Dual Credit

Most dual credit courses are recognized by both high schools and colleges but it varies from school to school. Before enrolling in a dual credit course, you should check with the particular school to see if the dual credit course will be recognized.

Many UIL regulations apply to dual credit courses. For instance, if the dual credit course issues only a pass/fail grade, the completion grade will not be recognized and the student will not receive credit for the course.

Dual Credit

The purpose of dual credit courses is to accomplish all of the following:
1. To reduce college costs
2. To speed time to degree completion
3. To improve high school curriculum
4. To align curriculum across high school, college, and the workplace
5. To facilitate a smooth transition from high school to college
6. To enhance communication between high schools and colleges
7. To offer opportunities for improving degree attainment to under-served student populations
