Dual Credit

We are pleased to be able to offer Bosqueville High School students the opportunity to enroll in dual credit classes. A dual credit class is a course in which a student receives both high school and college credit. Currently, Bosqueville High School students have the opportunity to enroll in the dual credit program through McLennan Community College (MCC). Students may begin taking dual credit courses in their sophomore year of high school.

Students enrolled in dual credit classes receive many benefits: a head start on college course work and reasonable tuition and fees; however, dual credit candidates also need to take precautions to avoid potential pitfalls:

  • Dual credit students are building a college transcript, and grades earned will be recorded permanently on the college academic record.
  • Many classes taken as dual credit will transfer to a student's future college and/or major, but some do not. It is the student's responsibility to research potential colleges and majors to investigate whether or not a dual credit class will transfer and be helpful in meeting future academic goals.

More information about dual credit at MCC can be found at http://www.mclennan.edu/dual-credit/
