Dual credit courses afford high school students the opportunity to earn college and high school credit at the same time. The Dual Credit Program (DCP) is designed to give high school juniors and seniors an opportunity to attend Doña Ana Community College classes prior to high school graduation. Qualified students who are enrolled in a school district that has a Dual Credit Master Agreement with DACC may take college-level, career-technical courses that will simultaneously count toward high school graduation and toward a certificate or associate degree at DACC. To complete a certificate or associate degree from DACC, they will have to attend additional semesters or sessions following high school graduation and pay DACC tuition and fees.
While DCP participants do not pay for tuition or text books, they do pay for their own supplies, protective apparel, and tool sets, when needed. They also may be responsible for certain course fees and other fees where applicable. In the 2014-2015 academic year, 1,399 students participated in either the Dual Credit or Early College High School program.
