Dear Student:
We at Western Texas College are excited about your interest in the dual credit program.
This program offers some great opportunities to you and some significant financial
savings. Through the dual credit program you can earn both high school and college
credit simultaneously. There are two tracks you can follow to receive Dual Credit. First,
there is the Academic Core track which is oriented towards students whose goal is a
Bachelor’s degree. The second track for Dual Credit is the Career and Technical track
which is designed for students who want to complete a certificate or Associate of
Applied Science degree in two years or less and go directly to the work force.
While you may be taking some dual credit classes at your high school, it is important for
you to make a mental distinction between college requirements and high school
requirements. College instructors expect you to spend a considerable amount of time
outside of the classroom to complete class assignments, research, and study. Your
instructor will explain concepts and methods, but you must invest the time needed to
develop an understanding and command of the topics covered in class.
Western Texas College has a number of resources and services to benefit you. The list
of services available to you can be found on our website at Please feel
free to contact Alicia Anderson, Director of Dual Credit & Distance Learning, at or 325-574-7630 should you have any questions concerning
the dual credit program. Thank you for your interest in our college, and we look forward
to working with you.
