What You Can Expect 


Course Rigor – The course syllabus and content are approved by the academic department at Navarro College and will be taught at the college level. Therefore, you can expect the difficulty of this course to be greater than other high school courses.

Study time – As a general rule, you will be expected to study two hours per week for each credit hour taken. Thus, for a three credit hour course, you should plan on approximately six hours per week for study and homework in addition to your class time.

Grades – You will be graded based on Navarro College standards and against other Navarro College students. You may be required to take a departmental final exam upon completion of the course. This exam will be administered at your high school.

Academic Record – The credit and grades you earn through the pre-college dual credit program will become a part of your permanent academic record (transcript) at Navarro College.

Policies/Procedures – You will be expected to follow Navarro College policies and procedures. To view the online Navarro College Catalog, click here or call the Office of Admissions and Records at (903) 875-7349 or toll-free at 1-(800)-NAVARRO.

Attendance – You should avoid missing classes unless it is absolutely necessary.

Course Fees – Course fees are based on an established rate, which is one-half the rate charged for courses taken at the Navarro College campus.
