What is Dual Credit?

Dual Credit is a term referring to students who earn BOTH high school credit and college credit at the same time by taking college-level courses at San Jacinto College while still in high school. Students have the ability to earn over 30 hours of college credit prior to graduation.  Any student who graduates with a minimum of 12 hours and a 3.0 GPA at San Jacinto College will receive a special cord for graduation.
