Dual Credit at TCC

High school students who enroll in the dual credit program earn transferable college credit, which saves them and their parents time and money. Some students will also earn a high school diploma and an associate degree simultaneously.

With the recent passing of House Bill 8 (HB 8), more high school students from qualifying families can now take dual credit courses for free. In response, Tarrant County College has committed to covering the cost of tuition for ALL dual credit students.

However, students must still pay the additional costs for learning materials such as textbooks, lab kits, and learning platforms. The cost is about $150 per student per semester.

Impact by the Numbers

The average associate degree graduate from TCC will see an increase in earnings of $9,200 each year compared to a person with a high school diploma or equivalent working in Texas.
