Dual credit courses are college courses taken during high school. Students who successfully complete dual credit courses earn both high school and college credit for one course. Plano ISD partners with Collin County Community College District to offer dual credit courses.

    Plano ISD offers both academic and workforce education dual credit courses. College course grades earned in dual credit courses are on the student’s college transcript as well as the high school transcript. There are tuition fees associated with dual credit courses, but students receiving free or reduced lunch benefits may have tuition waived.
