Welcome to Texarkana College. We are delighted that you have chosen to help students get a head start with college education by participating in the Texarkana College Dual Credit Program.
Texarkana College is a publicly-supported, two-year community college dedicated to serving the educational needs of diverse individuals, businesses, and the community through relevant programs and services that are high quality, affordable and accessible.
Dual Credit Purpose
The Dual Credit program at Texarkana College allows high school students to earn high school and college credits simultaneously. Through dual credit agreements, the college and the public school districts have selected courses that meet both high school and college learning objectives. Dual Credit Agreements must be annually updated, approved and signed by both required parties before students are allowed to enroll in dual credit courses. These courses are offered at local high schools and as online classes. Students interested in participating in this program must meet Texas Success Initiative assessment requirements appropriate for each course. To enroll in these classes, students must complete TC’s admission requirements. Interested students should contact their high school counselors. Home schooled students should contact TC’s Dual Credit Coordinator.
Dual Credit Partners
The Texarkana College Dual Credit Program proudly serves 16 Independent School Districts. The schools that make up the Texarkana College taxing district are: DeKalb, Hooks, Liberty Eylau, Maud, New Boston, Pleasant Grove, Premier, Redwater, Simms, and Texarkana. The other schools in TC’s dual credit service area are: Atlanta, Avery, Bloomburg, Linden Kildare, McLeod, and Queen City. Texarkana College has Dual Credit Institutional Agreements with all ISD partners. They are annually updated, approved and signed by both required parties before students are allowed to enroll in dual credit courses.
Dual Credit Distance Education
