STEP 1: To be eligible to take Dual Credit English during the 2017-18 school year, current sophomores and juniors must have attended a mandatory meeting (offered in February, 2017) with a parent or guardian.   Dual Mandatory Meeting PowerPoint-2/2017 

STEP 2:  Submit the Orange Commitment Form to the Counseling Office by Monday, March 20th.  After the deadline, students will be given information on the next steps of the registration process. *Students who do not submit the Commitment form by the end of the school day on March 20th, will have Dual removed from their course requests.

STEP 3:  Students will be given an appointment time to meet with the TCC Registrar's Office in a computer lab at GHS on Tuesday, April 4th.  During the student's appointment time, the TCC Registrar's Office will assist students in filling out their TCC college application.  Students will also be given instructions on taking the Texas Success Initiative (TSI-A).

*To be exempt from taking the TSI-A test a student must have an SAT score with a minimum of 480 on the Reading/Writing section OR an ACT score of 19 (minimum) on the English section with a 23 Composite score.  Students who are exempt from taking the TSI must order their official SAT or ACT score report from their College Board or ACT to be sent directly to the TCC North East Campus. 

STEP 4:  Students (who are not TSI exempt) will take the TSI-A at the TCC NE Campus during a designated window (April 6-19). Students will need to give the GHS attendance office a signed form from the TCC NE Campus Testing Center confirming the date they took the TSI (form will be given to students during appointment time on April 4th).  There is no cost to take the TSI-A. Students will need to show their picture ID and know their TCC student ID number to take the TSI-A at the TCC NE Campus Testing Center.  Students must give a copy of their TSI-A results to their high school counselor.  Students will receive their TSI-A scores immediately following the completion of the assessment. 

STEP 5:  Students do not need to go to TCC to register for their 2017-18 Dual class(es). GHS will give TCC official transcripts and signed Early High School College forms for all 2017-18 Dual English students.  

STEP 6:  Payment for Dual Credit tuition will be due prior to the first day of class each semester.  Payment can be made online through the student's TCC WebAdvisor account or in person at any TCC Business Services Office.  

Students taking summer classes at TCC: will need to obtain a Dual Credit, Concurrent and Collegiate High School form from the GHS Counseling Office as well as an official transcript. The student will register for summer classes in person at the TCC NE Campus Registrar's Office.  Students taking summer courses must take the TSI or send SAT or ACT scores to the TCC NE Campus if they are exempt.  Proof of a meningitis shot is required for students taking a course at any TCC campus location or utilizing any of the campus's resources such as the Tutoring/Learning center.
