Dual Credit Checklist

Deer Park High School has returned to a face-to-face learning format for the 2021-2022 school year and moving forward. 

The district will also require students to register for face-to-face courses at San Jacinto College as part of our dual credit program. 
Students will be offered the opportunity to take online courses only in the event that a face-to-face course is not available. 


Students who attended San Jac in Fall 2020 or Spring 2021, and received a W or F in a class, can retake the class this summer or fall. The college will pay your tuition for up to two classes. 


To retake the class, simply register in SOS. Set up an Installment Payment Plan (IPP) or pay in full. Tuition will be waived if you meet the criteria. 


Stay on track! We’re here to help.


Graduating seniors: Please contact the admissions office to sign up. 


High School Dual credit students: Please email your G number, First & Last Name, and the course you want to retake to [email protected]
