Dual Credit Checklist

REGISTRATION: Students register for the entire school year during the Spring semester of the previous school year. Dual Credit registration is from November through March.
All students (current and new dual credit students) must complete a new Enrollment Form/HS Contract.** 

Dual Credit is a form of concurrent enrollment that allows a student to take certain courses at San Jacinto College that earn BOTH college and high school credit.

Early Admission is a form of concurrent enrollment that allows a student to take courses for college credit only.  Students pay 100% of tuition and fees.

To be accepted for enrollment in college-level courses, you must have appropriate academic qualifications, a high level of motivation, and adequate time to devote to studying.  In order to enroll in the Dual Credit/Early Admission Program, you must:

  • Be a High School Student. Public, private, or home school students can qualify.
  • Have permission from your high school counselor or designee.

The TSI assessment is the instrument used by all Texas public institutions of higher education for assessing a student’s readiness to enroll in freshman-level academic coursework.  It measures a student’s competencies in reading, writing, and mathematics.

 Any 9th – 12th grade student may satisfy TSI requirements with one of the below listed TSI Exemptions, or with a High School TSI Waiver.  Students can use a combination of exemptions/waivers.  Partial exemptions/waivers are also possible.  Students who do not have qualifying exemptions/waivers must take the TSI assessment prior to enrollment in any academic course requiring college readiness in reading, writing, or mathematics.

*Skill levels required for Career and Technical courses vary.  Please contact Ms. Yates at DPHS for details. She can be reached at 832-668-7263 and [email protected]
