Dual Credit at Blinn

Dual Credit at Blinn is for students who attend high school within the Blinn College District service area. Please contact our staff if you need any further information.

The Dual Credit Program enables high school students to earn credit toward a college degree by enrolling in a college course and to simultaneously satisfy the requirements for high school graduation. 

College courses offered for dual credit may be taught at one of the Blinn College District campuses or on a high school campus by credentialed instructors, according to criteria established by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC).

College courses offered for dual credit include the same content and rigor as courses taught to other college students. Dual Credit students' permanent records will include both a high school transcript and an official college transcript.
