LSC-CyFair Dual Credit
Dual credit courses are those for which students receive college credit and high school credit while still enrolled in high school or homeschooling. 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 College campus and/or online. Dual credit students can also earn college level certifications while in high school that can lead to immediate job opportunities. Dual credit teachers are regularly employed faculty members of LSC or high school instructors verified by LSC to meet the same requirements as faculty teaching the same course on the college campus. For policy information, please reference College Board Policy Manual Section IV.B.1.1.11, available at www.lonestar.edu/policy.
- Lone Star College charges a reduced tuition rate (the price you pay for class by credit hours) for dual credit courses. Students only pay for tuition and textbooks.
- We partner with independent school districts, charter schools, private schools, and home school parents to offer courses in the core curriculum, foreign languages, and workforce education.
- Upon approval by the high school principal, or designee, and college admission through the exceptional admissions program, a student may enroll in college courses taught either at the high school or at LSC.
