Dual Credit at Kaufman High School

Dual Credit is a process in which a high school student enrolls in a TVCC course and receives simultaneous college credit for the course from both TVCC and the high school. While dual credit courses are often taught on the high school campus to high school students only, a high school student can also take courses on one of the TVCC campuses, through Distance Education, and/or through ITV, and receive both high school and TVCC credit. Dual credit courses include both academic courses as well as technical courses. These courses offer a pathway from high school to college, serving as an option to academic degree programs or college-level workforce education courses.

Students must apply to TVCC and meet testing requirements in order to participate in Dual Credit.



Testing Requirements


The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) was mandated by Texas law in 2003 and went into effect in September of 2003. The purpose of TSI is to ensure that all students enrolling in public higher education in Texas possess the academic skills needed to perform effectively in college-level coursework. TSI includes a testing component designed to identify and provide diagnostic information about the reading, writing and mathematics skills of each student.
