Wylie ISD offers a variety of academic and technical Dual Credit courses to high school students. A Dual Credit course is a course that enables students to earn college credit for both high school and college credit at the same time. A passing grade is required to gain credit. Passing standards for high school and college grades may differ. By taking college-level coursework, students can get a jump-start on college, saving both time and money. Dual Credit courses are offered through a partnership with Collin College. All courses will transfer to programs of study at Collin College. Students interested in going to other colleges/universities are encouraged to contact those institutions directly for additional information about how these courses will transfer to those institutions.
