Qualified students may be enrolled concurrently at a FISD high school and Collin College for specified classes noted in the FISD course catalog. Students in dual credit courses earn both high school and college credit. Students must meet Collin College admissions requirements and secure their high school counselor’s approval for the dual credit courses selected. Students must successfully complete the Texas Success Initiative Examination (TSI) or provide proof of exemption from TSI and an A/B grade point average is recommended. Courses are being added each year starting in the 2017-18 school year that will allow 2021 graduates to earn an associate degree through Collin College while completing the requirements for a high school diploma. Students are responsible for paying for tuition, books and fees associated with Collin College dual credit courses. Transportation is not provided to or from Collin College. Students seeking to earn an associate degree should secure academic advising provided through Collin College as well as their high school counselor to ensure their degree plan meets their needs. See counselors and the FISD high school course catalog for details. Additionally, if a student does not achieve a passing grade of 70 or above in the first semester of the dual credit course, the student will be required to discontinue the course and take the subsequent semester of the course at their high school campus.
