- Dual Credit
Dual Credit Program
Through the Dual Credit program students will have many great opportunities to start their college career. Not only will students get a head start on their college education, they can earn both high school and college credit simultaneously, and will have a great foundation and understanding of College expectations.
As your community college, we are here to assist our dual credit students with the transition from high school to College and help our students meet their educational goals.
There are two tracks you can follow to receive dual credit. First, there is the Academic Core track. Students will begin working towards completing the College Core Curriculum to further their college education. The second track for dual credit is the Career and Technical track which is designed for students who want to complete a Certificate or an Associate of Applied Science degree in two years or less and go directly to the work force.
Navarro College would like to welcome you and we look forward to assisting you!
