Fort Worth Independent School District (FWISD) students may be eligible to earn college credit while they are still in high school by enrolling in dual credit courses and successfully completing the courses. Fort Worth ISD and Tarrant County College (TCC) work together to provide students with the opportunity to participate in dual credit courses.
Dual Credit students take college-level courses taught by fully credentialed TCC faculty. These courses satisfy high school graduation requirements and provide college credit at the same time.
Fort Worth ISD will award high school academic credit for approved courses. TCC will award college-level academic credit.
