Eligible Course Categories

As a High School Programs student you are able to register into any eligible college credit courses for which you meet both TSI/college readiness skills -and- course prerequisite requirements.

However, State of Texas law (SB31) establishes three categories of courses for which a public college may waive or reduce tuition/fees as part of a dual enrollment program:

  1. Courses on the ACC Core Curriculum
  2. Foreign Language courses (to include American Sign Language/ASL)
  3. Courses that lead to a Workforce Certificate or Associate of Applied Science degree

*The dual credit tuition/fees waiver can only be applied to eligible college credit courses that are covered by the three categories listed above. All other ACC courses will be assessed regular tuition & fees according to a student's residency.
