Clarendon College Dual Credit

Get a Head Start on Your College Career with Dual Credit Courses!


Clarendon College's Dual Credit Program offers qualified high school (or home-schooled) students an opportunity to earn college credit while completing high school requirements.


The high school  identifies students who are eligible for dual-credit courses and recommends courses that potentially qualify for dual-credit. Students who meet specific eligibility requirements of both the high school and Clarendon College will be permitted to enroll in those Clarendon College courses specified in the dual-credit agreement and to simultaneously earn credit toward high school graduation and college credit.

Dual Credit is governed by rules of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the Texas Education Agency and Clarendon College.
