Dual Credit is an opportunity for high school students to earn high school and college credit simultaneously. Students demonstrating college readiness through a college placement exam can earn college and high school credits in the same course by attending classes at their high school, on a Lone Star campus and/or online. We partner with independent school districts, charter schools, private schools and homeschool parents to offer courses in the core curriculum, foreign languages and workforce education.
To qualify for dual credit, students must:
Get approval from your high school counselor or homeschool administrator.
Meet all course prerequisites and minimum college readiness test scores in reading, writing and/or math for enrolled courses. View placement scores at LoneStar.edu/DualCredit-TSI.
Complete all required enrollment paperwork available under the Partner Schools Section below and have it approved by your High School Dual Credit Counselor.
Maintain a final grade of C or better in all dual credit courses in order to enroll in subsequent courses.

Approved Dual Credit Courses
Determination that a college course meets the high school TEKS/learning outcomes for a particular high school course is the responsibility of the school district or private/charter/home school. The Lone Star College does not identify courses as meeting any particular TEA requirements for high school graduation. Lone Star College has designed dual credit courses to the meet the TEKS, but additional outcomes required by any school/district will need to be supplemented by that school/district. All decisions regarding a student's high school graduation plan should be determined by their school counselor/administrator. Offering a dual credit course remains the decision of each Independent School District. A course that is listed does not automatically grant an ISD approval to offer a course.
