Dual Credit is back in session on Monday

The deadline for students to withdraw from Dual Credit courses is Friday.

It’s back to school for the second time as dual credit students start their fall classes on Monday.

“We work with Collin College, and students have the option to choose to take the classes offered on our campus, or, they can take it at Collin itself,” lead counselor Amanda Zambiasi said. “If they choose to take it on campus we have professors who come here.” 

Junior Nolan Sow, who’s taking zero-hour English and U.S History dual credit classes is doing it for the financial benefit. 

“I have a high likelihood of staying in state for university,” Sow said. “So it would be cheaper to take these classes now than in college and easier to transfer the credit than it would be with an AP class.”

According to senior Tayyaba Mazhar, who’s enrolled in her second year of dual credit classes, doing the program offers students an advantage when it comes to colleges accepting the credit. 

“A long term benefit of taking dual credit is that the credits transfer over to your college unlike AP classes where you have to first pass the exam, and then see if your school accepts that class,” Mazhar said. 

For students who want a taste of college before doing the real deal, this might be the way to go. 

“If you want real college experience through a professor in high school, this route is great for that exposure,” Sow said. “Instead of a teacher, you’ll have a professor that will lecture over topics of study.”
