En español

Applications are still open for current tenth graders interested in applying to the Plano ISD Industries Academy. The application deadline has been extended to 5 p.m. on June 1. Students must complete a three step application process: an Plano ISD interest form, the dual enrollment process with Collin College and the Collin College Goolge form to apply to the Academy. See the Industries Academy website for more information.

Because of COVID 19, Collin College has waived the initial testing requirement to be enrolled in dual credit courses. Students will still need to take an entrance exam prior to October 16, 2020, but can enroll in courses with Collin College without a qualifying Texas Success Initiative-Assessment (TSI-A) score.
