Dual Credit Mission Statement:

The Amarillo College Dual-Credit Program's mission is to create a cooperative partnership between a high school and Amarillo College through which a student may be awarded both college and high school credit in courses that meet the requirements of both institutions.


The high school identifies students who are eligible for dual-credit courses and recommends courses that potentially qualify for dual-credit. Students who meet specific eligibility requirements of both the high school and Amarillo College will be permitted to enroll in those Amarillo College courses specified in the dual-credit agreement and to simultaneously earn credit toward high school graduation and college credit.

Dual Credit is governed by rules of the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, the Texas Education Agency and Amarillo College Policy and Procedures.
