The Academic Dual Credit Program enables high school juniors and seniors to earn credit toward a college degree by enrolling in a college course and to simultaneously satisfy the requirements for high school graduation. Qualified students may attend Blinn College beginning in the summer following their sophomore year with a limit of two (2) college credit courses each semester.
Save time. Save money. Get a bachelor’s degree just 1-2 years after high school or a master’s degree 3-4 years after high school. How? Academically-qualified high school students can enroll in core curriculum courses with credit toward a college degree through a combination of dual credit courses, advanced placement courses, and early enrollment. Graduates realize as much as a 30% savings on tuition and fees.
Bryan ISD’s Collegiate High School places 9th graders on track to get a college degree at the same time they graduate high school. The innovative approach takes place in a special small school setting with a select group of students getting the opportunity to earn both a high school diploma and an associate’s degree within four years. And tuition is free.
The partnership with Blinn College and Texas A&M University offers this unique college preparatory program primarily for students who might otherwise not go to college due to socioeconomic barriers.
