Frisco ISD offers several pathways for students to earn college credit while in high school. Frisco ISD has partnered with both Collin College and the University of North Texas to provide students with different dual credit options. Courses may be offered at the home campus and other dual credit courses require students to provide their own transportation to the college or university site.
Dual credit courses are taught and graded by college or university professors. The grades earned from dual credit courses will be posted on both the student’s college transcript and the high school transcript. There are tuition fees associated with dual credit courses that vary depending on the university or college.

Completing dual credit courses can allow students to earn a bachelors or associates degree faster, which would allow students to save money in college tuition. Dual credit from both Collin College and the University of North Texas can transfer to most public universities in Texas.
