Dual Credit at Grayson

Grayson College partners with area high schools to provide dual credit courses that simultaneously move students towards both high school graduation and a college degree or certification.

The Benefits of Dual Credit Include:

  • Dual Credit courses allow students to better transition to the college life while still close to home.
  • Studies show that dual credit increases the likelihood that a student will complete high school, and enroll in and persist in college. (THECB)
  • May significantly reduce the cost of higher education. GC tuition and fees are a fraction of the cost at four year schools.

Dual credit students have access to the same support and enrichment activities as traditional students. These include, library services, tutoring, and career counseling. They are also invited to participate in events held on campus.

Staff & Faculty

Students learn under the supervision of experienced and dedicated faculty members. Grayson College faculty believe in the mission of student success, and are a resource to help students achieve their goals.


FAQS

  • Academic courses are typically those taken in the first and second year of college and are necessary to complete an Associate's Degree. These courses generally apply to a bachelor's degree at any State of Texas four-year university. (Please get in touch with your high school counselor or GC advisor for specific transfer considerations.)These courses may be taken at the high school, online, or the college campus. (Examples: English, Government, History, Biology, Math, Psychology, Art)

    Technical courses lead to a certificate or Associate of Applied Science related to various high-demand occupations that require one to two years of training and allow students to go to work immediately after completion. These courses are not guaranteed to transfer; however, many GC programs have articulation agreements with certain four-year universities that allow for the transfer of credit to technical degrees to lead to a Bachelor of Arts in Applied Science. Don't hesitate to get in touch with your advisor for more information. (Examples: Welding, EMT, Cyber Security, Culinary Arts, Electrical Technology)
