COLLEGE CREDIT COURSES
Following the sophomore year of high school, students may be eligible to earn college credits, for example from Northeast Texas Community College. Any student or parent interested in detailed information should contact the Avinger High School counselor.
DUAL CREDIT COURSES/COLLEGE CREDIT COURSES
Students who have completed their sophomore year may apply to a college that allows concurrent enrollment and enroll in classes for dual or concurrent credit. “Dual credit” means students who pass a specific college course will be given both college credit and high school credit. The college course must cover all areas of the high school course, but at a higher level. For this reason, some college courses will only count as one semester of a high school class. The following classes at Northeast Texas Community College are accepted for dual credit for the indicated high school courses.
